Director, Rhode Island State Council on the Arts
ACM graduate of 2009 Maggie Anderson credits Pratt as the birthplace of her career. In particular the professors who are top people in their field gave Maggie the confidence that ACM would put her on the right track to her goals. As the Director of Arts in Education at the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, Maggie is a resource to schools and districts for education policy, curriculum and instruction support while representing her state to national organizations that influence arts education policy.
Maggie’s latest program launched this year, the Teen Arts Assembly, a group of student leaders who collaborate with the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts to advise the Education Department on initiatives and youth involvement. The Assembly represents Arts Education and the creative sector at events throughout the State while developing creative skills, leadership experience, and opportunities for their peers to engage with the arts.
