Brian Kisida receives NEA grant to study outcomes of arts enrichment
June 16, 2017
Brian Kisida has been named the co-recipient of a competitive $90,000 grant from the National Endowment for Arts to study the impacts of arts enrichment on students’ academic and social outcomes.
Kisida, along with Daniel Bowen of Texas A&M University, will study the Arts Access Initiative in Houston, a partnership between Houston Public Schools and dozens of arts organizations. The evaluation, also supported by the Spencer Foundation and the Houston Endowment, will be the first of its kind to gauge the effectiveness of a large-scale partnership program.
The funding is part of the $82 million awarded to local arts projects across the country.
