What is the Arts in Education Partnership // Erie Arts & Culture

The Pennsylvania Council on the Arts (PCA), a state agency funded by the citizens of Pennsylvania through annual legislative appropriation, provides funding for arts in education programs in each of Pennsylvania's 67 counties. As the regional partner for the PCA, Erie Arts & Culture manages the Arts in Education (AIE) Program in the six counties of Northwest Pennsylvania, including Erie, Crawford, Warren, Mercer, Venango, and Lawrence. The AIE Program provides teaching artist residencies for schools, non-profits, local agencies and community groups, as well as professional development workshops for artists.
