Help the TAPA ensemble create a vibrant film program culminating in a community celebration of students' creativity in film
Help make the First Annual TAPA Urban Youth Film Festival a reality! Spanning a week in January 2013, the festival will showcase the work of TAPA's Artist-Scholars: 7 - 9th grade urban student artists. Our students have the talent and the passion to make this happen, but we need your help to fund the supplies: cameras, lighting equipment, editing software, as well as Artists-in-Residence stipends to provide our students with local high-quality instruction. The festival will accept submissions from TAPA and other local schools, and will culminate with screenings at local professional venues where students can premiere their work with pride.
TAPA student-created films:
Why do we need your help? The Arts are expensive, and we are a high-poverty urban public charter school. Over 90% of our students live in poverty and 100% are minority students. Our students come from a low performing district, and most arrive at TAPA with deficits in reading and/or math. At TAPA students receive a high-quality education steeped in critical thinking, problem solving and creativity. A TAPA education is an arts-integrated education; your donation will help our students demonstrate their academic mastery through the arts.
Our students have earned a high quality film program; they have potential for greatness. Just imagine what they can do with the right equipment, consistent instruction, and a professional venue to showcase their work.
