A showcase of art, music, dance, and drama created by the “artists-in-residence” of the East Side Arts Camp.
Mission Statement: The East Side Arts Camp, now in its third year, is a fun and free program that offers high-quality arts instruction to students with limited access to summer activities. We strive to instill two things in our “artists-in-residence”: an abiding love of the arts, in all their wonder and diversity, and the sincere belief that they are worthy artists with worthy perspectives. This year, we experimented with the theme of “fairytales, folktales, and fables.” Making use of these stories allowed us to explore a variety of cultural histories, examine important life lesson, and synchronize our efforts across the various artistic disciplines. The “East Side Arts Camp Show & Tell” is the culmination of that work, complete with gallery display and a block of live performances starting at 6:30pm. A showcase like this provides our artists-in-residence with an invaluable opportunity to see their work come to fruition, and to do so at the most popular arts event in the city. We invite any and all to come support the artists-and-residence!
