We Are On A Mission To Make Arts Education A Right, Not A Privilege, For All Public School Students.
To honor the legacy of Arthur Miller and his New York City public school education, the Arthur Miller Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing quality theater education to public school students.
New York City is the theater capital of the US, but only approximately 20% of public schools in NYC have a dedicated theater teacher or program. Not only are we determined to increase that percentage significantly in NYC, but our larger vision is for the organization to reach a national level, so that theater is an integral part of the academic day for all public school students across the country.
