The Green Street Arts Center received a $2,500 grant from the Middlesex County Community Foundation on Dec. 28. The award will support the “Arts in the Communities” project through June 30, 2011.
“Arts In Our Communities” is a collaborative program which aims to increase the number of people engaging in arts activities, as both participants and audience members. The program’s objective is to provide the tools of critical thinking and civic engagement while injecting a powerful stream of creativity into the local communities, thus reinvigorating people’s drive to work, think and create together. Arts In Our Communities intends to bring a diversity of arts education opportunities to the communities of Middlesex County and its adjacent towns.
