Broome Street Academy Charter High School, Inc.
Broome Street Academy Charter High School, Inc. (New York, NY) – for $16,898 to install modern lighting and audio equipment, as well as a repair of the wall partition in their performance and technical theater to enhance the quality of theatre offerings for students. This critical renovation will ensure that students have a professional space equipped with the tools needed to support them in their theatrical development and education. Broome St. Academy’s (BSA) theatre education, infused through school-day classes and extracurricular opportunities, provides a safe space for creative expression that allows students to explore artistic forms for which training is rarely available in their communities. Many of BSA’s students come from low-resourced areas with little access to the arts and have experienced significant disruption to their educational development through homelessness or placement in foster care. As a result, BSA aims to ensure that students will have opportunities for creative self-expression, as well as a space to explore career paths in theatre that they otherwise not have access to.
