In the Community

Night Out Program

IMAC continues to cement their community partnership with MLK with the Night Out program.  Generously funded by the GPD Foundation, IMAC administrator/instructor Lauren Curry will take up to 10 students  to 3 cultural events in Indy.  The grant provides tickets and transportation not only for the students, but one parent/guardian as well.  As funding in general and arts funding in particular is threatened in public schools, this program seeks to supplement humanities learning in School 43, attended by most of the MLK students.  By encouraging the students and their parents/guardians to think critically about what they see, it takes learning out of the classroom and at the same time creates opportunities for child and adult to engage around the arts!

 

Seasonal Affective Disco

Lauren Curry and Bethany Bak head over to Newfields’s to help out with their newest endeavor, a series of early morning exercise/dance parties featuring music mixed by DJ Fate, and a cash bar with coffee, juice and nutritious snacks. “Come and get your groove back with a celebration of the sun!”
