The Deeper Learning & Creativity Program is guided by a vision of public education as a foundation for building democratic skills and practice, and as one that is inclusive and equitable for the diversity of learners who are our nation’s students.

We support community-based organizations to help young people and teachers make meaning of their world through developing multiple literacies through engagement with and through the arts and other project-based learning methodologies.


We focus on two core strategies:

  • Our first strategy is guided by data-driven research showing professional development as a key indicator for student success. We support professional and curriculum development efforts including project-based learning practices that nurture 21st-century skills including creativity, critical thinking, communication, collaboration and empathy.
  • Our second strategy is guided by two decades of research demonstrating that high-quality arts integration is critical to closing the achievement gap, preventing school dropout and cultivating a more inclusive social culture. We support opportunities for shared learning and organizing and for deeper collective impact strategies for 21st-century learning in the state of California.
