This youngster was our Cruella de Vil at a school near Story and King. Before the show she was crying with fear and stage nerves. When she got on stage she was perfect. And after the show, I got to share that movement of pride with her. I swear these kids give life.
Arts education is not about the production of art or talent or any of that stuff. The arts at The Audacity Performing Arts Project are about creating moments of inspiration that will power a lifetime.
I left tech to develop these programs 13 years ago. Since then I have left at least $1,000,000 by not working in tech. In the past 5 years I have made less that $20,000 (in total).
Why? Because of this young girl and 100s of children like her. These children are why.
Because this is what life is about – inspiring the next generation to believe they can have a world that is better than the one we have today.
Its about life.
