Artist Call



Turnaround Arts: California seeks artists to help create Community Art Projects at a few of our partner public schools statewide.  The Turnaround Arts program supports and guides communities in reexamining their approach to fostering growth in historically marginalized schools by adding the arts as a core element of intervention. This approach centers arts learning as a vital step to bridging
opportunity gaps in our communities.

A program of the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Turnaround Arts is based on the premise that high-quality and integrated arts education can strengthen school change efforts, boost academic achievement, and increase student engagement in schools facing some of the toughest educational challenges in the country.

Turnaround Arts: California is committed to investing in the communities our schools are located.
Organizations and artists that identify as BIPOC and/or come from the same communities as the
schools are particularly encouraged to apply.

Projects may be placed at schools located in:

  • Santa Ana (Orange County)
  • Watts, Compton, Cudahy, Lynwood, Paramount (Los Angeles County)
  • Hoopa Valley (Humboldt County)
  • Seaside (Monterey County)
