Arts Alive Mission Statement
Arts Alive is the West Virginia Department of Education's annual event to showcase outstanding arts education programs and student achievements in public schools. The work included in Arts Alive is selected from state arts conferences, festivals and exhibits throughout West Virginia; a competitive submission process; and/or by invitation. Arts Alive is in its eleventh year and has expanded collaborations and interdisciplinary partnerships to include work from the following areas: Dance, Music, Pre-Kindergarten, Science in the Arts, Theatre and Visual Arts. Students perform and exhibit work before an audience of students, family members, educators, policy makers, leaders, advocates and philanthropists.
Arts Alive aims to support developing and established arts programs in public schools throughout West Virginia; inspire local education systems to embrace the arts as an essential part of every child's education; and empower the broader learning community to advocate for comprehensive arts education in public schools.
Arts Alive is dedicated to arts education in West Virginia and remains committed to providing a venue where the arts are paramount, inspired teaching is honored, and the work of young artists is celebrated.
