Back in 2011, we founded a 501(c)(3) called Situation Project. Our vision with Situation Project is to provide arts-deprived public-school students access and exposure to world-class New York City arts and culture experiences. We deliver at least two experiences for each student every year. We also provide hands-on activities that integrate technology with the arts, deepen student encounters, and inspire tomorrow’s leaders.
We now work with three public schools in New York City and, to date, we’ve created over 18,000 experiences that have enriched these students’ lives. We hope this model can serve as inspiration for communities across the country to act and support the students in their own backyard.
Overall, we’re passionately working towards providing these students the opportunity to expand their worldview and learn directly from professionals themselves, and we’re engaging our community to do it.
