What if... the arts could open hearts and minds, and have deep impact?
One of the key parts of the SCA’s mission is creating connections. Pre-Covid we might not have thought as much about the notion of “connection”. But if you’re like me, right now feeling connected with others – and making connections – has become a priceless gift.
In spite of the ups and downs this past year, the SCA found ways to create connections … person to person, and through our programs.
Our Summer ‘21 Visiting Artist Sandra Antongiorgi shares: “I will forever remember July 2021 as a month of teamwork, friendships, creativity, growth, and awe for the absolutely amazing people I had the privilege of working with and, well, love, actually.”
Michele Helburg, manager for Dixie’s Tupperware Party, says: “The SCA crowds are like a giant warm hug. Thank you for giving us this gift after more than a year of the world upside down.”
Fennville student Talan Marquez, who helped create the community mural during our Growing Young Artists program this summer, says he sometimes struggles to find his place, but during Growing Young Artists, “the classroom was my community!”
The SCA is not just a place … it’s a set of experiences. Experiences that create connection and common unity.
With your help we’ll continue using the arts to bring people together.
Through projects that invite everyone to create and engage, with an eye on cultivating impactful relationships and lasting memories.
To date we’ve raised $54,000 of our $75,000 – I hope you’ll make a gift to push us across the finish line by December 31.
Thank you for helping create connection and common unity (community!) through the arts. Together we CAN open hearts and minds and create deep community impact.
