Sept 10-16 is National Arts in Education Week!

Want to participate but don't know how? Here is a How To Guide from our friends at Americans For the Arts!

#BecauseOfArtsEd Social Media Campaign

An essential part of National Arts in Education Week is visibility. This is your chance to tell your own personal story about the transformative power of the arts in education on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Whether you are an individual or an organization, you can share your story in innovative ways. Make sure to use the hashtag #BecauseOfArtsEd on all social media platforms. This allows others to check out your post and for it to be included in the campaign! For anything regarding National Arts in Education Week, be sure to use #ArtsEdWeek, too!

Also, don’t forget to tag people or organizations in your photos. Tagging others using their @handle allows others to join in the fun of the campaign and to share their story, too. Pro tip: tag @Americans4Arts so we can check out your post—we love to reshare our favorites!

Lastly, be sure to like, favorite, retweet, or share others’ posts! This way we can amplify our message and get the word out in all corners of the country!
