Freedom Bus Project and Art IS Education
Submitted By the Superintendent of Alameda County Schools
The Alameda County Office of Education's Alliance for Arts Learning Leadership, in partnership with the Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District (AC Transit) and the Alameda County Arts Commission, announce the launch event for the Freedom Bus Project and Art IS Education 2011.
Alameda County Superintendent Sheila Jordan will be joined by AC Transit Director-At Large Joel Young to announce the Freedom Bus Project to the community, celebrate arts in education, and commemorate an important historical moment.
Organizers see the launch event as an opportunity to celebrate the power of art to inspire and ignite movements for change. The March 2011 Art IS Education theme is "Creating Solutions for the World We Share," which importantly ties into the Freedom Bus Project as promoting civil rights and equality to combat the global challenges our world shares.
This is a call for participation in a student art competition to commemorate the 55th anniversary of Rosa Parks' historic bus ride, and to celebrate the East Bay's rich diversity and legacy of community activism, and student expression for social justice through the arts.
