Julie's AFA Audience Project 2014 Page
A Fundraiser by Julie DeVito

Summary As part of our "Audience Project," Arts For All will tour a professional live children's show, "The Emperor's New Clothes," FREE OF CHARGE to 2,500 in-need children grades K-5 in the New York area. What is the issue, problem, or challenge? Arts for All serves in-need children who have little means or opportunity to explore the arts due to economic disadvantages, physical and mental disabilities, hospitalization, socialization issues, emotional trauma, or any other life challenge. This project will provide children with the opportunity to have a professional live show come directly to their school or youth organization. If enough funds are raised, we will also send children free drama workshops prior to the performance. How will this project solve this problem? Arts for All will send out 10-14 live performances of "The Emperor's New Clothes." At each performance we anticipate a minimum of 250 children. Youth will be given "study guides" prior to the performance, to introduce the show and its themes. In many instances, this will be our students' first experience seeing live theater. Potential Long Term Impact This show has valuable themes that will stay with children, such as being proud of who you are and being honest. By exposing youth to theater, we are introducing them to a new form of creative expression as well as showing them how professional actors work together as a team to attain a common goal. For all students, this will be an introduction to an inspiring, positive creative outlet that resonates with many and is explored in-depth through the use of the study guide in the classroom. Funding Information Total Funding Received to Date: $1,560 Remaining Goal to be Funded: $8,640 Total Funding Goal: $10,200
