Arts and Culture Community Issues Session with Akron Community Foundation

If you missed our previous Community Issues Session, which focused on education, we learned about the importance of a “supercharged” Out of School Time Network. An important element to this network of after school activities is arts & culture programming for young people. Join us for our next Community Issues Session, which takes place Tuesday, April 25, at the new Highland Üniversal Gatheringspot (HÜG), in Highland Square, from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Please note that doors will open at 3:30 p.m. The informational session focuses on arts & culture and will bring attention to organizations that are providing educational and artistically enriching opportunities, featuring perspectives from providers and students, along with live performances.

The panel of presenters includes Akron-based pianist, composer and educator Theron Brown, who will discuss the performing arts programs for students available through the nonprofit Open Tone Music; Ismail Al-Amin and Ameer Williamson, from Akron Urban
