Festa 20/20: The Stream, live on March 20th @ 7:00 PM and featuring special performances by our house band, Arts Corps teaching artists and staff, and youth alumni.
Streaming link will be announced Wednesday, March 18th
Please help us by registering to watch. It’s free and takes just a minute or two. We’ll send you a direct link to our live stream on Friday March, 20th once you are registered.
This fundraiser is too important for us to cancel and we need your help to make it a success. Though the direct health concerns are still unfolding, we know our teaching artists and students will be impacted by this pandemic. Aside from the health risks, both the mental strain and the disruption of everyday life is a concern going forward and something we would like to be conscious of.
Despite class cancellations, we are committed to paying our teaching artists and youth leaders. Education doesn’t stop when we leave the classroom and neither will our educators. To help our Arts Corps family keep the lights on, we are requesting your generosity, energy, and good hopes. Festa is such an important night for us and we need to raise $250,000 by the end of March. Please consider making a gift of support today if you are unable to tune in.
If we can’t have a big party, let’s have an intimate one. We will be live streaming an NPR Tiny Desk-style concert for Festa from our office at the Youngstown Cultural Arts Center. Though the gala doors are closed, we are opening a window to invite you in.
