This week we were thrilled to kick-off a summer of artistic traditions from around the globe with For Kids Only Afterschool. Throughout the summer Young Audiences of Massachusetts artists will be bringing performances to FKO sites in Peabody, Revere, Everett, Winthrop, and Chelsea that tie into their theme of "A Summer of Unity - Passport to Fun," with each week focused on exploring a different region of the world. Campers started their journey this week in North America, with performances by Illstyle and Peace Productions (Hip Hop Dance) and Veronica Robles (Music and Dance from Mexico), and will spend next week exploring South America and enjoying Grooversity's Brazilian Beats program. Throughout the summer, students will also learn about Kathak dance from North India, Klezmer music from Eastern Europe, traditional folk music from Ireland, storytelling from West African traditions, music and dance from the Caribbean and from the Arab world, taiko drumming from Japan, and traditions of Chinese acrobatics. Though each arts genre chosen for this partnership originated in another country (with the exception of Hip Hop), all are practiced in communities across the United States. After a year and a half at home, this summer is about expanding horizons and celebrating the rich diversity of both local and global communities.

New research finds evidence arts education increases school engagement, attendance among Boston students - The Boston Globe

Longitudinal research supported by EdVestors found that #ArtsEd positively impacts student engagement, attendance rates & parent engagement with schools! Thank you to EdVestors for supporting artist-in-residencies in Boston Public Schools, including YAMA's! BPS is "committed to prioritize the arts 'as we promote our students’ social and emotional health to fully recover from this pandemic and reimagine learning for our young people.'”

Boston Public Schools students who were enrolled in arts education programs had greater school engagement and higher daily attendance, while their parents were more likely to be active in school activities, according to the results of a new study.

Powerful perspective on arts education and social justice from KCET in L.A.

Arts Education is a Civil Right Inseparable from Freedom

Powerful perspective on arts education and social justice from KCET in L.A.

Access to the arts has a multitude of benefits, yet many young minds still don't have access to it, especially in California. Through the denial of arts education, students of color are disproportionately being denied the right to their soul and creative potential.

My Immigrant Story

The Mayor's Office for Immigrant Advancement - Boston and the International Institute of New England are looking for immigrant #storytellers to share their experiences about the 2020-2021 school year! Storytellers can be students, parents, educators, and more. Storytellers need to live or go to school in Boston.

Many of us in Boston are immigrants or the children of immigrants. This adds rich, cultural diversity and perspectives to our communities. By sharing our experiences, we can understand each other better and be a stronger, welcoming City.

I work at Gideon Welles School in Glastonbury, Ct. I saw your program for EA and it is very inspiring. I watched the interview and that was great too.

Hola fellow artists! Education First, in partnership with the NoVo Foundation and Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors are seeking applications from school-based educators (teachers, counselors, administrators, and other school staff) and district-level staff for initiatives that will foster social and emotional learning skills in students in grades PK-12 during the 2020-2021 school year. They will award up to $7,000 to school-based educators for classroom and/or school SEL initiatives, and up to $25,000 for district-level initiatives. This year they are also considering some two-year grants. More information and application details can be found here. The deadline for applications is Friday, April 10. Please pass this message along to anyone in your networks you think would be interested. Thanks for helping to get the word out!

Big day today (Thursday) at the Brookwood School in Manchester. We performed our Woman Who Outshone the Sun, and then presented 4 workshops for the 4th & 5th grades. We designed and prepped 80 masks for this program! 4th grade made Greek Satyr Chorus masks and 5th grade made Japanese masks. Each workshop was only 45 minutes long. Go to my FB wall and see how well these students did today!
Good morning, Young Audiences! I hope you like my new video, great for teaching early literacy (and days of the week, and healthy eating) through music!
