Arts are a powerful tool for improving lives, bridging communities, and encouraging civic participation. Arts-involved Individuals show an 86% increase in civic involvement, are 40% more likely to have diverse friends, and twice as likely to register to vote. Yet access to the arts remains significantly economically and racially disproportionate. Find out how Hyde Park Art Center’s new “Community Supported School” model of arts participation encourages shared ownership while strengthening communities across generations, socioeconomics, and racial disparities.
