COVID-19 Update & Response
Due to the ways in which the COVID-19 crisis has so impacted the arts education ecosystem, AEMS has decided to postpone the public launch of the artlook® Maryland platform in order to focus our resources and efforts on supporting our community during this deeply unsettling time. We are excited to share the artlook® Maryland map with you as soon as some regularity and structure has returned and our community has started to heal.
In the meantime, we are incredibly excited to announce that the platform is responding and adapting to the COVID-19 crisis. Through collaborative efforts with Ingenuity and other other artlook® communities across the country, we have been able to repurpose the functionality of the platform to better address the immediate needs of our arts education community during this time. To learn more about how artlook® Maryland is adapting to support the arts education community’s transition to virtual learning, please check out our artlook® Virtual Learning Library page.
What is artlook® Maryland?
Arts Education in Maryland Schools (AEMS)’s artlook® Maryland is a free-to-use, easy-to-navigate web platform that paints the portrait of arts education in your community. By visually mapping data about arts access and resources, artlook® Maryland will allow for unprecedented transparency about arts education in Maryland’s public schools and drive connections between educators, arts partners, advocates, and funders. The platform will revolutionize the field of arts education in our state by creating a new level of accountability and providing tools to help uplift and advance the arts in our schools. To learn more about how artlook® works and to preview the platform experience go to https://artlookmap.com/
artlook® Maryland is currently piloting in Baltimore City and Anne Arundel, Montgomery, and Queen Anne’s counties. AEMS’s vision is to reach all 24 Maryland school districts by 2024.
