ArtsEd Tennessee is a statewide nonprofit coalition dedicated to promoting, supporting, and advancing arts education in the state of Tennessee. Founded in 2017 by a coalition of advocates, ArtsEd Tennessee is well on the way to being a statewide leader to ensure supportive policies and essential funding to advance quality, accessible arts education for all students.

We seek operating support for staffing, strategic communications, and project outreach activities.

Communications: ArtsEd Tennessee maintains a broad communications presence with regular updates to members about important pending legislation, current resources to the field, Tennessee Department of Education policy, and actions by the State Board of Education.
