Mercer Middle School PTSA 6-15-435
Mercer Middle School PTSA received a $5,000 grant award from the City of Seattle Office of Arts and Culture in February 2015.
The award paid for teaching artists to lead Liberation Theater workshops with Mercer International Middle School youth.
Approximately 15 youth participated in about 40 hours of programming that blended hiphop culture with a focus on Beacon Hill as home.
The project took place at Mercer International Middle School as part of out-of-school time programming during the 2015-2016 school year.
Thank you to the Office of Arts and Culture whose funding made this program possible. Thank you also to the teaching artist, Mercer Community Learning Center staff and the youth participants.
