staff and community of Forward Arts are seeking your help in providing arts
integrated instruction to four public schools, through our Spring Forward donor campaign.
The Spring Forward campaign will
allow Forward Arts to bring its WordPlay Writing Project artist-in-residency
program to McKinley High, Southeast Middle, Broadmoor High and Glen Oaks High
at no cost to the schools.
the last eight years, the WordPlay program has been one of the nation’s leaders
in the field of youth spoken word, creative writing and arts integration. WordPlay has been able to service thousands
of Baton Rouge youth through our in-school residency program, after-school
writing workshops, monthly youth open mic and annual city-wide teen poetry slam
festival. As it is our mission to
provide learning opportunities and platforms for youth and adults through the
arts, we come to you, our community, to assist us in continuing this mission.
are seeking to raise $15,000 between December 9th
to support the cost of providing semester-long writing workshops to the
aforementioned schools, as well to help offset the production cost of the eighth
annual ALL CITY Teen Poetry Slam Festival.
Please join us by making a donation to
the Spring Forward campaign today!
