The Red House gives an informative talk about the necessity of keeping the arts in schools.
The Red House Arts Center (Redhouse) believes art has the power to build community and change lives. Everyday, we work across our community of Syracuse, NY, especially with underserved populations, creating opportunities such as acting roles, free tickets, and volunteer experiences. We bring the arts to students in struggling Syracuse City elementary schools reaching 2,200 kids each day. We are constantly growing and expanding in order to have the greatest possible impact on our community.
Redhouse is a nonprofit, multi-arts organization dedicated to interdisciplinary works in the theatre, music, and visual arts. Redhouse is a regional provider of community-based arts education, with an emphasis on providing artistic experience for at-risk youth, individuals with disabilities, and families in need. We reach these populations through our public programs and community engagement initiatives by partnering with community organizations such as Syracuse City School District.
