It is with the utmost excitement and happiness that Project Attica would like to report its recent grant award from the Citizens Committee for New York City (CCNY). For the fourth consecutive year, the CCNY has supported Project Attica's artivist workshop in an effort to continue bringing art into the classroom for New York City youth to engage students in critical thinking and to empower them through the arts.
This year we will continue to expand our artivist program into all five boroughs bringing the workshop to new schools while building on our existing partnerships. We will be able to have more supplies, offer more workshops, and thereby reach more students to familiarize them with the artivist concept. Additionally, the grant monies will also assist us in continuing to develop our 501(c)(3) status.
We at Project Attica would like to thank CCNY and all its donors for believing in our work, which essentially is all about bringing socially conscious art to New York City youth and community members.
