Arts Corps and Reel Grrls Learning Immersive Technology (LIT) program addresses the need for low-income students of color in Seattle and South King County to gain equitable access to STEM fields through arts education. As district and state resources have ebbed due to budgetary cutbacks, arts experiences in the community and in K-12 schools have become increasingly limited or nonexistent. Arts Corps and Reel Grrls offer a viable and unique means of supplementing the current deficit of support for arts, tech, and computational learning through teaching artist-led workshops, as well as professional experiences and performance opportunities to support the skills acquisition of developing artists and technology innovators.
Using Arts Corps’ expertise in curriculum development for arts-based experiential learning, and Reel Grrls expertise in digital media creation, these two organizations are dedicated to developing creative habits of mind in young people and will play a major role in providing students with the skills needed and critical thinking required to successfully be working in 21st century careers. Both Arts Corps and Reel Grrls are committed to racial and gender equity and works to build capacity by recruiting and training students to be the next generation teaching artists, thus ensuring that our teaching teams reflect the identities of students.
