Jax Arts Education Program Wins National Endowment Grant
Jacksonville’s Cathedral Arts Project has won a $100,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. The initiative partners with Duval County Schools and several private organizations to provide arts education in public schools.
The Collective Impact Grant is one of eight awarded nationwide.
In her grant application video, Cathedral Arts President Kimberly Hyatt touted the program’s success since it began in 2013.
”This is just the time when I feel like the stars are aligned in this city, with all the actors that we have in play and the work that’s already been done,” Hyatt said. “We have a lot of momentum going, and we really hope that we can continue it.”
In a news release, Cathedral Arts says it will expand its programming and buy new equipment for middle schools across Duval County.
