Community Arts Caucus (CAC)–Established 2012
Purpose: To foster a diverse and inclusive national network of Community Arts practitioners, including practitioners, artists, educators, students, and researchers, that works to represent and advance the concerns of members and the field; to encourage the development of relationships among those who teach art during school and outside of school within their communities; to assist in providing leadership in the professional development of Community Arts practitioners and researchers; to work to encourage the advancement of art education outside of schools, in community settings, and for school-community partnerships.
