Arts Inclusion Residencies

*Deadline extended to November 20th!

Residencies may include in-person, virtual, and hybrid projects.

Arts for All Kentucky (formerly VSA Kentucky) in partnership with the Kentucky Department of Education Office of Special Education and Early Learning, is offering awards of $1,350 to schools throughout Kentucky to fund inclusionary, hands-on arts projects through our Arts Inclusion Program.

Projects will be scheduled to take place between January - May 2021.

Arts for All Kentucky provides a directory of experienced artists for you to work with in planning and implementing the project.

The Arts Inclusion Program gives your school an opportunity to provide thematic, adaptive, and experiential arts activities in creative writing, dance, theatre arts, media arts, music, storytelling, or visual arts that help to ensure successful learning for K-12 students with and without disabilities. Arts for All Kentucky Teaching Artists interface their art forms with your curriculum and Kentucky Academic Standards. They also provide a completed Universal Design for Learning (UDL) guide and worksheet for your project and will work with you to design a project that may include in-person sessions, virtual demonstrations and workshops, take home projects, videos, Zoom sessions, etc.

Application deadline is November 20, 2020
