Turnaround Arts: California

About Turnaround Arts: California

Co-founded in 2014 by renowned architect Frank Gehry and arts education advocate Malissa Shriver, Turnaround Arts: California is a nonprofit organization that administers Turnaround Arts, a school reform program launched by the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities under the Obama administration and now run nationally by the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. The program is designed to bring effective and integrated arts education into some of the lowest performing elementary and middle schools across the country. Through this initiative, schools in the process of reform develop new strategies and tools to shift school culture and climate
and better engage students and families through the arts. Learn more at
