Pack The Palace! The Urban Arts Festival Manhattan
May 13, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Urban Arts Partnership believes that empowering young people to follow in the legacy of artistic greats at the United Palace is a life-changing experience. This annual event breeds creative confidence in students and is key to engaging and inspiring young people to succeed in school. The #PackThePalace campaign is a call to action to fill the 3,400 seats in the historic theater to celebrate the creativity of Urban Arts Partnership students in NYC and the end of the school year!
Middle and High School students will perform, showcase work and receive awards from special guests, Chancellor Carmen Farina, Borough President Gale Brewer and Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez for excelling in arts integrated programs that provide support with the Regents, Attendance Improvement and Language Acquisition for English Language Learners.
“We challenge NYC to come out in support of Arts Education by Packing the Palace,” said UAP CEO Philip Courtney, “Bring your families and share with us what he hope to become a great annual tradition.”
