Arts Every Day serves as a strategic partner to the school district in advancing equitable access to the arts and implementing the 2018 Fine Arts Strategic Plan. The organization provides teacher professional development, arts integration technical assistance, and funding for student arts experiences, school-based public art projects, arts equipment, and supplies.

Mission: The arts, for every student, in every Baltimore City Public School, every day.
Equity: The arts are for everyone. In Baltimore City, historical oppression, systemic and institutional racism continue to contribute to inequitable access to a quality education that includes the arts. The arts are a human right. In our daily work we strive to: amplify the voices of underrepresented communities we serve, especially people of color; reflect the communities we serve within our arts partners, staff, and board of directors; advocate for funding, policies, and practices that remove barriers and advance equitable access to the arts; honor the artistic creative voices and lived experiences of our youth.
Vision: We envision a future where every student attending a Baltimore City Public Schools has equitable access to a transformative arts education that prepares them to join generations of artists, leaders, advocates, makers and supporters of the arts.
