Creative Action recently received a $35,000 Art Works grant in support of teen programs from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). The grant supports lifelong learning and public engagement with the arts and will benefit staffing and resources.
NEA Chair Jane Chu says, “No matter who you are or where you live, the arts have the power to transform individuals, spark economic vibrancy in communities and transcend the boundaries across diverse sectors of society. Supporting projects like Creative Action’s teen programs offers more opportunities to engage in the arts every day.”
Creative Action’s teen programs are Color Squad, Changing Lives Youth Theatre Ensemble and Youth Cinema Collective.
