The annual Student Voices Campaign, produced by the California Alliance for Arts Education, gives students a way to take an active part in shaping their own future.
Through the campaign, students from all over California produce videos that advocate for arts education for all students. These videos are shared directly with local school districts and elected boards as they are making funding decisions. In California, students are guaranteed a voice in planning for their school districts, and this media and arts-based approach to advocacy has had compelling results.
The Arcata Arts Institute media arts students submitted 4 videos this year.
