Arts & Creative Education Integration for Student Excellence (ACEISE)

The Arts Alliance, in partnership with the Washtenaw Intermediate School District, Eastern Michigan University and a host of cultural education providers, is leading the Arts & Creative Education Integration for Student Excellence (ACEISE) initiative, offering equal access to quality arts and cultural education for every student attending a Washtenaw County school. The Arts Alliance and its partners received a $50,000 grant from the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan to support the ACEISE program to start the project. They received a $100,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) that extends the project to include a professional development program for the WISD district.
