The arts are part of a well-rounded education for people of all ages! Performing Arts Workshop works with more than 4,400 Bay Area students each year to make sure they have access to the arts and can find the tools they need to tell their own stories. This spring, we’re raising $6,000 to make sure the arts are accessible to students in pre-K through 12th grade.
If you believe ALL students deserve access to the arts, please join us.
- $10 gets you a single drink at happy hour somewhere in the city or helps fund our arts programming.
- $25 is your friend's last minute Amazon gift card birthday present or is a donation to our students in your friend's honor.
- $50 gets you an okay dinner out for two in San Francisco or sponsors the participation of FIVE students in one of our performing arts classes!
Through our performing arts classes, our students are empowered to share their various identities—such as proud immigrants, survivors of trauma, and budding artists—by:
- Taking ownership of their creativity and original compositions,
- Fiercely tackling complex work, like writing duet pieces about racial identity, AND
- Performing their unique pieces live at our annual Student Showcase in front of 300 people!
In our classrooms, students improve their critical thinking skills, better communicate creative choices, collaborate with their peers, and are more engaged in school.
Our fundraiser helps us to engage with our Bay Area youth in a critical way—it provides a holistic education to those who deserve it most!
