Arena Stage is extremely grateful for the Friends of Southwest DC’s steadfast support of the theater’s arts education programs. Friends of Southwest DC has generously supported our Camp Arena Stage Scholarships and Voices of Now Jefferson Ensemble for over a decade, making it possible for more Jefferson students to engage with and learn through the arts.
Programs like these provide immense support for participating students, including many who might otherwise have little to no access to arts education in the nation’s capital. Because of your organization’s constant support of these endeavors, we have been able to continue providing these programs to students in Southwest.
Our first and longest standing Voices of Now partner is Jefferson Academy, the only middle school located in Southwest D.C. and we are thrilled to be able to send several students from Jefferson Academy to Camp Arena Stage each summer with scholarships. We are grateful for our partnership with Friends of Southwest DC.
FOS has supported Arena's education programs for over 10 years. To see the reports and pictures from the 2018 Camp Arena Stage and the 2018 Voices of Now performance of the Jefferson Academy click on the files below.
