arts-X-press performance

We have made the difficult decision to cancel arts-X-press 2020 due to continued uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. Despite this cancellation, we still believe there is a place for arts-X-press this summer. At arts-X-press, we create a safe place for students to process the world around them, find their voice, take creative risks and have fun. We believe that both camp and the arts provide a place to heal, to rejuvenate and to find community – and that this is more important now than ever. While the in-person connections cannot be replaced, we are determined to provide a space for our students to explore the arts together this summer.
