Grex Group Partners with Art Start to Help At-Risk Youth in NYC
Grex Group Theatre may be a relatively young company, but we believe you’re never too young to make a big impact. So, we’ve been asking ourselves how we can expand the impact of Grex Group Theatre productions beyond our own work to assist the larger arts community in New York City. That’s obviously a question we will continue to ask ourselves as we grow, but for now, we’ve already begun an exciting new philanthropic partnership we’d like to tell you about. We’re pleased to announce Grex Group’s partnership with NYC charity, Art Start.
Art Start is an award-winning, nationally-recognized model for using the creative arts to transform young, at-risk lives. Art Start kids live in city shelters, on the streets, are involved in court cases, or surviving with parents in crisis. Through Art Start’s daily creative arts workshops taking place inside some of the city’s loneliest places, at-risk youth collaborate with local teaching artists and educators who donate their time and guidance to nurture the youth’s creativity and talents.
We have been so pleased to discover the work that Art Start is doing in New York City and to get to know some of their team. To show our support for their work, Grex Group has committed to donate 1/2 of all ticket revenue from our upcoming production, Ibsen’s Women, to Art Start. That means $6 of every ticket sold will go directly to support the work of this charity!
Please take some time to find out more about Art Start on their comprehensive website. We think you’ll agree this is a fantastic organization doing some great work for a great cause. Join us for Ibsen’s Women on October 14th and you’ll be supporting Art Start with your ticket purchase. Beyond that, consider how you might be able to donate your time or money to support the ongoing work that Art Start is doing.
