A conversation with
Adam Davis, Executive Director
Oregon Humanities

What is Oregon Humanities’ mission?
We’re in the business of building civic infrastructure – not roads and buildings but habits and practices of listening, thinking, and talking with one another. Our vision is an Oregon that invites diverse perspectives, explores challenging questions, and strives for just communities.

Access to Arts Education in Oregon Schools

The Arts Education Database is a statewide searchable database meant to reveal the range and availability of arts classes offered in Oregon schools.

“This database is an invaluable tool for parents, school boards and arts education advocates who want to track the availability of arts classes – in all disciplines – between schools, districts, and academic years,” said Deb Vaughn, Arts Education coordinator.
