Open Arts Alliance is a social-service organization which utilizes students’ artistic abilities to facilitate social service outreach to the senior population of our community focusing on brightening the day (and spreading education) to aging adults with dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease.
We achieve our mission through each of our 5 cornerstone programs feature volunteerism training and arts education to ensure that all our students-ages 4 to 104 (yes, really)- experience the power of personal growth through the performing arts.
While you can learn a lot about our accomplishments in the first five years of our life by visiting our list of past productions or reading about the awards we have won- it doesn’t tell the full story. The over 4,500 students we see annually (in classrooms, schools, rehearsal rooms, senior centers, etc.) can tell that story better than we can. We are detail oriented and caring. We are an organization of constant reflection and self improvement, but we are also driven by the need to change the landscape of both the arts and arts education.
This application is designed to give us a sense of who you ARE, not just what you can “do.” We anticipate this takes 10 minutes (or less) and hopefully is (at least a little) fun!
We look forward to learning about you, and thank you in advance for your application!
