Highlights of the 2022-2023 Artists in Schools 

Our flagship program, Artists in Schools, places professional teaching artists in Wake County K-12 schools for curriculum-based performances, workshops, and residencies for over 130,000 students each year. These programs help students learn to problem-solve, work together, and seek creative means toward common goals.

For the 2022-23 year, United Arts worked with 107 artists/companies/ensembles/groups and served 138 schools.

Through these schools, United Arts was able to help contract:

  • 239 performances
  • 100 workshop residencies
  • 39 weeks of writer residencies
