Engage with PIA

Make a difference in education!

Partners in the Arts has been training teachers and connecting schools with teaching artists and arts organizations since 1994.

Here are some other ways to engage with PIA to provide learning opportunities for ALL students.


The program welcomes inquiries from artists or arts organizations interested in

  • Developing a relevant, integrated program
  • Becoming a visiting artist in a PIA Award project
  • Teaching workshops for educators and/or students

Students and Educators

PIA has established an internship program for students and recent graduates looking for experience in education, arts integration programming and not-for-profit management. Fall, Spring, and Summer internship opportunities are available. To apply or for more information, UR students and alumni should search “Partners in the Arts” on SpiderConnect. Non-UR students and alumni should review internship information and application.

Businesses, Civic Organizations and Others

Partners in the Arts can always use volunteers with a wide variety of interests and skills to assist with the Joan Oates Institute and PIA Award programs. Please contact us using the information in the sidebar.
