The Wade Center has proposed a production entitled, The Wade Neighborhood.
Professional artists will draw out stories of the children in our after-school program. They will teach the children how to depict their stories in various forms, including an image each child will create for their unique t-shirt costume.
The students will gain a sense of dignity and self-worth, art skills and teamwork experience. In the final video product, each child will tell their story, perform a song or express "This is me" in his or her own way. Each child's need to be seen and appreciated will be met while working together on a large project with others.
