The PROJcast

Sep 18, 2019

“High school was like a learning experience for me.” - Tatiana, age 18

As the school year launches, we bring you some perspective from our young people. From  last spring’s Radiomaking program, we have Derek’s non-fiction piece interviewing a couple of his fellow Project members on their feelings about school. We revisit the conversation that Smart Partners Tati and Krystel Lucas had on their last meeting, this time musing on Tati’s experience graduating high school. We close it out with a recording of a song from our gala in May, Ronald Peet performs a piece with music by Sean P. Pallatroni and lyrics by Amari.

A production of The 52nd Street Project, a non-profit arts education organization working with the children (ages 9 - 18) in Hell’s Kitchen in Manhattan. The Project brings kids together with adult artists to create original work for the theater. The PROJcast offers a behind-the-scenes view of the work of the Project as the kids create and explore theater as well as other art forms, such as song, dance, poetry, film and more. Long term-mentoring relationships form the basis of much of the Project’s work, and these episodes will feature reporting, stories, performances and interviews with kids and adults.

The 52nd Street Project is supported by The Altman Foundation, & The Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation.
