American Cultural Exchange
This program’s objective is to expose ArtsTech youth to different cultures and art, encourage exploration and educational opportunities, and to get a taste of the world outside of Kansas City. Experiencing other worlds can be motivating and can inspire life changes and long-term goals of young people. In 2016 we were successful in fundraising a trip to Santa Fe, NM for youth in our programming. In July 2020, we plan to do this again. Youth will attend the 2020 International Folk- Art Festival, experience the extensive galleries in Santa Fe, hike in Bandelier National Monument, visit Taos, and explore Georgia O’ Keefe’s Ghost Ranch. Any support you can give to this initiative would be greatly appreciated.
