Doing Well and Doing Good by Doing Art

In Spring 2012, our partners at 4Culture featured Executive Director Una McAlinden to discuss our Principals Arts Leadership (PAL) Program in their blog. Reflecting on the needs of principals, and questioning how the arts could be more readily provided to students, Una recalls how the idea of the leadership based capacity-building program emerged.
Now heading into it’s ninth year, PAL continues to thrive thanks to the support of 4Culture, and has recently launched recruitment for the new cohort of schools for Fall 2012. Learn more about PAL and it’s continuous efforts in 4Culture’s blog.
