Boeing grant to support enrichment programs for students, educators


Last updated 11/18/2016 at Noon

Edmonds Center for the Arts (ECA) announced the award of a grant from The Boeing Company to support their expanding work for students and educators.

The two-year grant will support a range of programs designed to provide diverse populations of students with meaningful arts education opportunities and increase overall arts participation by teachers and students across local school districts.

Specifically, the grant supports these ECA programs in both 2016 and 2017: annual Summer Arts Enrichment Camps, free Artist Residencies & Outreach programs for young people, and professional development opportunities for educators.

The Boeing Company has supported education and outreach efforts at Edmonds Center for the Arts with a previous grant.

“In 2015-16, ECA was able to engage nearly 11,000 children, families, teachers and community members of all ages through Education & Outreach programming,” said Gillian Jones, Director of Programming for ECA.

“Summer Arts Enrichment Camps and Artist Residency & Outreach programs are critical areas of our ongoing engagement with the community. ECA is deeply grateful to The Boeing Company for this support and partnership.”

Edmonds Center for the Arts (ECA) is a non-profit performing arts facility in Edmonds.

Located in the historic original Edmonds High School building, ECA was remodeled and opened in October 2006 to be a cultural resource for the Puget Sound region through performing arts presentations, community partnerships and Education & Outreach programs.
