ACT partnered with Arts Corps’ classes from Interagency high school to uplift youth voices in response to the themes in History of Theatre: About, By, For, Near. Interagency high school has multiple sites where Arts Corps’ teaching artists teach an art class through a healing, anti-racist, and social justice lens. In the lobby of ACT’s Falls Theatre we had the privilege of witnessing art from Interagency students in the following sites: Beacon Academy, Alder Academy, Southeast Interagency, Southwest Interagency, University District Youth Care (UDYC), and Queen Anne Interagency.
Arts Corps revolutionizes arts education by igniting the creative power of young people through culturally engaging learning experiences. Arts Corps is a nationally recognized youth arts education organization that works toward a world where barriers to arts education no longer exist and all young people can creatively lead the transformation of schools, neighborhoods, and beyond.
