While protests have subsided, World Projects continues to support the Black Lives Matter movement and joins with all those seeking a more just and equitable society. We urge our community to maintain the visibility of this unique opportunity for meaningful change.

While this has certainly not been an “ordinary” summer, we hope everyone has been able to find ways to enjoy and relax nonetheless! As we approach the fall, World Projects expresses our hope for wisdom and insight as schools and organizations grapple with the difficult decisions for the coming school year. As always, World Projects wishes good health and safety for all!

Sponsored by a wide consortium of performing arts organizations and schools headed by NFHS and CBDNA, the University of Colorado has released preliminary findings for their Performing Arts Aerosol study for wind instruments and voice. The research is in progress and further instruments/voice/choir studies will be released later in the summer. While this research is still in progress and will require peer review, the preliminary results and recommendations make for an interesting read – here is the link: Preliminary Testing Report - July 13, 2020

Fall 2020 Guidance for Music Education from NFHS and NAfME
The mission of the National Association for Music Education (NAfME) is to advance music education by promoting the understanding and making of music by all. The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) provides leadership for the administration of high-school based activities, emphasizing health and safety to develop leaders and increase opportunities for all. In the time of COVID-19, we collectively believe that music programs are more vital than ever, given their ability to support the social and emotional wellbeing of students and their ability to foster community.

ArtsEdNJ Fall 2020 Guidance for Arts Education
This document provides practical guidance for K-12 schools as administrators and arts educators seek to provide meaningful arts instruction for students of all ages and grade levels during the COVID-19 pandemic. In this unique time, arts educators are modifying their practices not only in teaching, but in classroom orientation, cleaning, spacing, and management. It’s understood that arts educators, as trained professionals, are committed to offering the very best instruction so all students can learn and grow in their knowledge, understanding, and love of the arts. This guide asserts that arts educators can still do that, but also acknowledges that how we teach may be different than in the past.

EduHam at Home – Explore the World of Hamilton
EduHam at Home was created in March 2020 in response to the COVID-19 outbreak that forced school closures throughout the country. It is an extension of the Hamilton Education Program (EduHam), which has served more than 160,000 students across the country since 2016. Through EduHam, students study primary source documents from the Founding Era, learn how Lin-Manuel Miranda used such documents to create the musical Hamilton, and finally create their own original performance pieces based on the same material.
