Cleveland Foundation launches arts initiative for kids

The Cleveland Foundation has launched a sweeping new arts education initiative for children of low-income families with a $500,000 grant to Cleveland Public Theatre to fund a three-fold increase of participants in its year-round Brick City program. Brick City, which engages 300 children from ages 5 to 14, will expand to serve 700 more participants over the next two years at four additional CMHA sites.

While children in low-income parts of the city may have access to sports programs, access to the arts is often extremely difficult, and the Cleveland Foundation wants low-income children to have the same access to high-quality arts education as children at Greater Cleveland's elite private schools.

By the end of 2017, the foundation wants to expand its arts education project with additional grants to reach thousands of children in low-income neighborhoods who are interested in visual arts, photography, music and dance in coming years. Click here to read more about the arts initiative.
