EVENT: BAM 24-Hour Movie Marathon
EVENT DATE: Sep 05, 2014
Remember the first time you were in a class play. What part did you play? Did you have to memorize lines? If so, I bet you still know a line or two.
Not everyone gets such opportunities. "In New York City, the cultural capital of the world, public school students do not enjoy equal acces to arts education...Where the arts could have the greatest impact, students have the least opportunity to participate in arts learning." --Center for Arts Education study
BAM IS TRYING TO CHANGE THAT AND YOU CAN HELP:
Just $25 helps get one kid involved in Arts & Justice, a free after-school program in which high school students create orginal theater works about social justice issues.
A $120 donation send 10 students to a schooltime performance at BAM--the same spectacular theater that you love helps inspire creativity and a love of learning.
And, $1,000 allows 100 families to attend a screening at the 17th Annual BAMkids Film Festival.
Whatever you can spare will go to good use. And please, feel free to become a participant in the Movie Marathon! We will have loads of fun with free food, yoga stretches, celebrity appearances, and lots and lots of movies.
Thanks - and please help spread the word !
Proceeds from this marathon directly benefit students K—12 through BAM Education’s in- and after-school programs in dance, theater, poetry, film criticism, and more.
