BENEFITING: PERFORMING ARTS WORKSHOP INC
"I AM MAGIC" - Jeffrey, 8 years old
PSSSST - That's me, with my award-winning poem about polar bears and protecting the environment. Even then, performing and creating helped me envision a different world, and my place in that world. That personal magic - the ability to dream, create and do - is what got me from that picture in Wrentham, MA to my dream job at Performing Arts Workshop in SF. I want to make sure other kids get the chance to learn like I did - like an artist.
The # of children living in poverty in San Francisco increased 14% in the last 4 years. And the need for kids in SF to learn how to create, speak, dream, build and learn increased 100%. Performing Arts Workshop gives kids that chance. Now, more than ever, we need to cultivate the next generation of San Franciscans - creators, dreamers, builders, learners, ARTISTS to help us solve our most challenging problems!
