ARTS FIRST is a network of organizations whose mission is to work collaboratively to create the conditions and culture that promise a comprehensive high-quality arts education – learning in, about, and through the arts – for every student in Hawaiʻi.
Representatives from ARTS FIRST institutions meet to discuss and plan activities in alignment with the strategic plan.
ARTS FIRST Partners invites entities interested in participating as affiliate partners to contact the State Foundation on Culture and the Arts. We seek partners who will contribute resources and expertise toward reaching the AFP strategic plan goals.
The SFCA is responsible for facilitation, coordination and reporting on behalf of the AFP.
Following the end of each fiscal year, each of the partners provides summarized narratives and financial information of their respective arts education activities in support of the AFP Strategic Plan.
