South Nashville in District 10 and 19
Andrea Evans was awarded $4000 to implement Just an Idea to Help Young People Excel (J.A.I -2- H.Y.P.E.). This project is a multidisciplinary arts engagement workshop that happens twice a month in various cultural epicenters in the South Nashville Community. These workshops will be held at Greater Mt Zion Church, Mt Messiah Church, Mt Ararat Church, and the Pruitt branch Library. JAI-2-HYPE works with youth Aged 10-17 to engage in the South Nashville with visual arts, dance, and instrumental music by bringing in professional artists to help them cultivate these skills. This program is located in an area of Nashville that is often under served. With this project, we will bring these youths into a paradigm of creativity which will help to influence them towards positivity and keeping them actively engaged.
