Any Given Child Initiative



The Austin Independent School District, the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the City of Austin and MINDPOP are coming together to launch a city-wide vision for creative learning in Austin, a city whose identity and economy are built on ideas and innovation.


The Any Given Child initiative is an unprecedented partnership in arts education among community arts organizations, the school district and the City of Austin. It is designed to provide all AISD students with the opportunity to attend arts-rich schools and to ensure every child benefits from learning in a creative classroom.
Strengthening arts education and creative learning for all students is vitally important to maintaining Austin’s strong creative community and economy. The creative sector generates more than $4.35 billion in economic activity, more than $71 million in city tax revenues and almost 49,000 jobs.
Austin’s creative sector employment has risen by about 25 percent during the past 5 years, a pace more rapid that the 10 percent growth of the local economy as a whole, according to a City of Austin report released earlier this year.
