Laurie Tisch in MetroFocus Segment on the Center for Arts Education’s Career Development Program

Arts as a Right

The Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund is a champion of access to arts education in schools, because as Laurie says in this interview with MetroFocus “Arts should be a right, not a privilege.” The focus of this segment was our grantee Center for Arts Education’s Career Development Program that creates opportunities for exceptional high school seniors to participate in school-to-career activities in the arts and related industries. She was also joined by program alumni Kenneth Garcia and Deanna Siguenza, who shared their experiences in the program and the benefits it yielded them.
