Image for DreamYard Project to Partner with The Public Theater

Jun 18, 2013
Bronx, NY

This April the DreamYard Project announced a partnership with The Public Theater and other community arts organizations across all five boroughs of New York City. The partnership, titled Public Works, is a major new initiative of The Public Theater that seeks to engage the people of New York by making them creators and not just spectators. Working with DreamYard and other partner organizations, members of diverse communities have been invited to attend classes and productions and to become involved in the daily life of The Public Theater. The project will blur the lines between professional artists and community members. The partnership will culminate with a performance of The Tempest at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park at the end of this summer. The performance will involve all five partner organizations, including DreamYard.

About DreamYard Project
DreamYard uses the arts to inspire youth, public schools and communities. DreamYard programs develop artistic voice, nurture young peoples’ desire to make change and cultivate the skills necessary to reach positive goals. By committing to sustained learning opportunities along an educational pathway, DreamYard supports young people as they work toward higher learning, meaningful careers and social action. We believe that young people in the Bronx need a continuous set of supports to help them towards positive outcomes as they navigate their educational pathway. We have every expectation that through offering sustained and meaningful supports our youth will develop the tools to become creative and engaged citizens, life-long learners and the leaders and innovators of the 21st century.
