Turnaround Arts: California builds a network of support around our partner schools, connecting them with regional 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.

During the 2023/24 school year, Turnaround Arts: California is partnering with 24 public elementary and middle 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.
