The ABC Fellowship is an inquiry-based, people centered approach that empowers teaching artists building partnerships in their community.
The Fellowship pairs an AFL teaching artist, a lead teacher (K-12 Educator), and an AFL staff member in an 18-month deep dive into the culture of a school community. Each trio explores the assets of the school, the socio-cultural history of the surrounding community, and the needs of the students they are serving. Each fellowship is tasked with developing a 3-year ABC Vision Plan to serve school, communities, and students through arts integrated approaches, with funding to pilot some of these programs. This process is supported by bi-weekly one-on-one coaching and full cohort meetings for the ABC fellows.
