       CREATING A

COMMUNITY MURAL :

"Youth in the Barrio: Dance in the Community"
Arts Education Residency

 

This project was made possible by the Tucson Pima Arts Council PLACE IV on behalf of the Open Society Institute.

 

In July, Safos kicked off the 2013 arts education residency program "Youth in the Barrio: Dance and the Community."  The residency was held at the House of Neighborly Service in the City of South Tucson.  During the residency, youth ages 8-14 worked with Safos artists to produce a site-specific dance theatre production.  Youth engaged in all aspects of producing a show, including workshops in choreography, prop making, music composition, light design, etc. The goal of the project is to expose youth to the performing arts and these artistic career choices while preventing underage drinking.  For more information about Safos Arts Education Residency Program please contact us at (520) 481-1656 or safosdance@gmail.com.
