Arts & Education Project

The Arts and Education Project ("AEP") of the Institute for Diversity in the Arts at Stanford University began in 2014 for the purpose of documenting, analyzing, and disseminating best practices regarding the use of hip hop in education. The project also focuses on the impacts and "halo" effects of these pedagogies on current and former diverse low-income high school students in the East Palo Alto community.


IDA’s project partners are the Mural Music and Arts Project and East Palo Alto Academy. It has been generously funded by the Surdna Foundation.
