Lift Every Student Artist-in-Residence

Any Given Child Jacksonville and the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville partnered to develop an Artist-in-Residency program in which Jacksonville artists were embedded in Duval County Public Schools and paired with educators to merge the arts with other academic areas. They spent time with classes, one day a week for 20 weeks working on arts-integrated projects and uplifting the history of Jacksonville.
