Michigan Council for Arts & Cultural Affairs
The Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA) strengthens arts and culture in Michigan by increasing its visibility; supporting arts education; encouraging new, creative and innovative works of art; and broadening cultural understanding. A key conduit for arts and cultural information, MCACA is also a source of arts and culture grant funding.
National Endowment for the Arts
Established by Congress in 1965, the NEA is the independent federal agency whose funding and support gives Americans the opportunity to participate in the arts, exercise their imaginations, and develop their creative capacities. Through partnerships with state arts agencies, local leaders, other federal agencies, and the philanthropic sector, the NEA supports arts learning, affirms and celebrates America’s rich and diverse cultural heritage, and extends its work to promote equal access to the arts in every community across America.
U.S. Department of Education
In 2014, Mind Meets Music began a partnership with the United States Department of Education. As part of this partnership, Mind Meets Music is undergoing a 4-year study to evaluate the efficacy of the program. This study is being conducted by WestEd, a national research and evaluation organization based in California.
