Arts Alive Mission Statement
Arts Alive is West Virginia Department of Education's annual event to showcase outstanding arts education programs and student achievements in public schools. The work included in Arts Alive is selected from state arts conferences and festivals throughout West Virginia, a competitive submission process, and/or by invitation. In its eighth year, Arts Alive 2014 has expanded collaborations and interdisciplinary partnerships to include work from the following areas: Dance, Music, Pre-Kindergarten, Science in the Arts, Theatre, and Visual Arts. Students perform and exhibit work before an audience of students, family members, educators, policy makers, leaders, advocates, and philanthropists.
Arts Alive aims to support developing and established arts programs in public schools throughout West Virginia; inspire local education systems to embrace the arts as an essential part of every child's education; and empower the broader learning community to advocate for comprehensive arts education in public schools.
Arts Alive is dedicated to arts education in West Virginia and remains committed to providing a venue where the arts are paramount and the work of young artists is celebrated.
