Art is for Every Body!
Culturally Responsive Arts Integration Resource Development (CRAIRD)
Led by Charles Chip Mc Neal, the Culturally Responsive Arts Integration Resource Development is a doctoral research and development project seeking to improve resources available to those who endeavor to reduce the achievement gap in education through the use of culturally responsive pedagogy and arts integration practices, and to improve the tools, strategies and pedagogy associated with working with diverse learners in urban public school settings. Specifically CRAIRD seeks to amplify the voices and expertise of artists and educators of color in the academic domains and society by producing articles, blogs, videos, and other media.
This project is proud to be supported in part by the Panta Rhea Foundation. Independent Arts & Media, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, dedicated to building community through media and the arts., is the fiscal sponsor for this initiative.
