Help with Kennedy Center’s “Any Given Child”.

Dear Arts Leader:

By now I hope you’ve heard that RACC is partnering with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and their Any Given Child program to conduct a thorough inventory of our region’s assets in arts education, and to identify gaps. I am writing to ask for your assistance in this very important study.

It has been more than five years since RACC conducted such a comprehensive inventory and assessment on the topic of arts education, and our findings will help meet our community’s goal of creating a long-range plan for a comprehensive arts education that is equitable and sustainable in the Portland metropolitan area. Over the past three months, the Kennedy Center and a team of local volunteers have worked together to develop three sets of surveys to ensure that we are collecting the most relevant information about arts education from schools, from artists and arts organizations, and from the community at large.

If you are providing arts education programming to any K-8 students in the Hillsboro, Gresham-Barlow, North Clackamas and/or Portland Public School districts, please help us now by completing our special ARTS ORGANIZATION survey. There are between 13 and 20 questions, depending on your answers, and the entire survey should take no longer than 5-10 minutes.” The survey is available online at:


The survey will remain online through February 14th, but we encourage you to complete it as soon as you can. Our findings will be shared with you and the entire community in August.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions about this survey or the objectives of Any Given Child in the meantime. Thank you for your time and assistance!
