The Artistic Literacy Consortium is the result of a partnership between the Alabama State Council on the Arts and the Alabama State Department of Education. In September 2013, a task force was formed to create a plan that would make measureable progress toward developing artistic literacy in all Alabama students. After a two year process a comprehensive plan for multiple diverse stakeholders was unanimously endorsed by the governing boards of both organizations. The result was the founding of the Artistic Literacy Consortium.
