Turnaround Arts: California helps connect partner schools with regional arts networks, including community arts organizations, teaching artists, arts and cultural institutions, performance venues, professional learning experts, and higher education professionals in order to build community support systems that lead to sustainable change.

Some highlights of our shared impact and reach in the recent 2021/22 school year:

During the 2022/23 school year, Turnaround Arts: California is partnering with 23 schools spread from our state’s southern border to our northern coast, with schools in urban, suburban, and rural communities. All are Title I schools with significant populations of socioeconomically disadvantaged students.
