NEIGHBORHOOD ARTS AMBASSADORS
Art is for everyone, but not everyone in the neighborhood knows about the incredible arts activities happening in the neighborhood. Margaret, a performer who is passionate about working with youth, provided programing to youth ages 12-15 that exposed them to drama, poetry and photography. This also was a job where they received a stipend. They shared information and connected the neighborhood to the arts district through impromptu public performances.
Project Topic: Youth Engagement
Project Description: The youth will learn photography, spoken word, creative writing and drama. They will engage community artists and use these skills to promote the arts in the neighborhood. The youth will receive a stipend for their work.
Community Engagement: The Arts Ambassadors will attend community meetings and gatherings to inform residents about arts activities and events and do mini arts workshops. The youth will also survey the residents to learn about their arts interests.
