The Alliance has operated on the foundational premise that no one individual or group acting in isolation can solve the complex systemic problems in public education.

In the decade since it began, the Alliance has been progressing in an intentional arc: from partnerships, to collaborations, to networks of influence, towards where we are now--creating a vision and structure for collective impact

The Alliance for Arts Learning Leadership is currently engaged in Mapping the Next 10 Years.  From March through June 2012 more than 280 people representing 50+ organizations from 8 counties participated in self-organized, face-to-face conversations around the question:

How can we collectively transform public education through the arts to create a better future for everyone?

These conversations, a synthesis of the emerging collective vision and Phase II steps to collective action are posted in an online stream.
