you love the arts and want to make a difference in your community? Youth can use the artistic activities they enjoy to #LeadASAP
through an Awareness, Service, Advocacy or Philanthropy (ASAP) project. Tapestry
Collection by Hilton™ and Youth Service America are partnering, through the #LeadASAP Tapestry Collection Spark the Arts Program, to activate
youth to organize projects that improve neighborhoods
around new Tapestry Collection locations through
Tapestry Collection Spark the Arts grants of $500 will be awarded to up to 10 youth,
schools, youth development/afterschool programs, and community-based organizations
in the city of New Orleans, Louisiana to support youth-led projects that
activate volunteers ages 12-25. Projects will take place in the Spring of 2018.
Proposed projects should use the arts (music, painting, drawing, writing, dance/movement, graphic design, drama/theater, photography, film-making, comedy, fashion design, etc.) to address a cause in the community (poverty, hunger, health and well-being, education, equality, safety, climate change, environment, peace, etc.) by educating others, volunteering, advocating, or fundraising.
grantees will have a chance to be recognized by Tapestry Collection and Youth
Service America at an event at The Troubadour New
Orleans, Tapestry Collection by Hilton. The application deadline is February 15, 2018.
