Youngstown Cultural All Access Programs Need Your Support

Consider buying a ticket to Youngstown Cultural Arts Center’s SKIFFLE fundraising event Friday, September 17, from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm. ┬áIn addition to helping the Cultural Arts Center’s groundbreaking youth support programs, you also get an evening’s worth of entertainment, food and drink, and socializing.

Please join Youngstown Cultural Arts Center for a casual, engaging evening of music, food and drink, friends and inspiration to benefit Youngstown’s ALL ACCESS Programs. Skiffle will feature live music, multimedia, live painting, circus arts, and general revelry.

Teaching artists and premiere local acts Cristina Orbe & Air 2 A Bird will perform full musical sets, Youngstown partners The Cabiri will dazzle with aerial movement, and the incredible talents of Youngstown’s youth artists and leaders will be sure to bring down the house.

All proceeds go to “raise the rent” for Youngstown’s free weekday after-school arts classes, where upwards of 300 youth have participated in classes ranging from Organic Gardening to Rock Band 101, DIY Fashion to Hip-Hop Dance, and Beatmaking to Spoken Word Poetry. Your support is critical to the continuing survival of our programs!

This is a great opportunity to see or introduce others to Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, a historic former elementary school renovated into a multi-use arts space that is unique to Seattle, and to learn more about our programs.

In addition to hors d’oeuvres, there will be an open beer & wine bar.

Tickets are $25 suggested donation and will be available for purchase at the door or via this web link at Brown Paper Tickets.

The fundraiser is presented in conjunction with Youth Media Institute, the Nature Consortium, Rock School, Arts Corps, and Blank Canvas.
