A searchable website called Smart Culture Source developed by the Cleveland Arts Education Consortium supported by The Cleveland Foundation was introduced online in September 2009 for families in Cuyahoga County and beyond. This innovative, one-stop site, www.smartculturesource.org, lists after-school, weekend and summer arts and culture programs for Pre-K to Grade 12. Smart Culture Source is now hosted by Starting Point, a wonderful community partner and CAEC Leadership Partner Member. Their technical staff have streamlined the listing process and CAEC is offering training sessions to aid in those processes.
