NEW YORK, NY –The Altman Foundation recently awarded the New York City Arts in Education Roundtable a capacity-building grant for the development of a new website. Given the impact of COVID-19 on the field of arts education, this grant will help the Roundtable in our efforts to serve arts educators with more expansive and effective digital tools and resources. In addition to designing a website that is more responsive and accessible to everyone, our goal is to ensure that the site is more dynamic, streamlined, and multimedia-friendly.

“The Roundtable prides itself as the main information-hub for NYC’s arts in education community. With this generous gift from the Altman Foundation, we will be able to better serve the field and our membership with a new, more accessible website that highlights our rich professional learning resources including workshop videos, community blog posts, a robust jobs board, and upcoming opportunities,” says Kimberly Olsen, Executive Director of the New York City Arts in Education Roundtable. 

Over the next several weeks, the Roundtable staff will be working with our member-led Advocacy, Communications, and Membership Committees to identify areas for improvement in the website user experience. We will also be conducting surveys to solicit feedback on the new website’s design direction in our efforts to address the needs of our members as comprehensively as possible.
