)-- Providence ¡CityArts! for Youth is now accepting nominations for their 3rd Annual Sister Ann Keefe Award for Creativity and Social Justice.
Nominations can be submitted through a form on the ¡CityArts! website (www.providencecityarts.org), or through their Facebook page (www.facebook.com/pvdcityarts). Nominations will be accepted through Friday March 8, 2013.
The Sister Ann Keefe Award is an opportunity to pay tribute to those who ignite action for social change through a creative lens. In 2011 the inaugural award went to Sister Ann Keefe, who founded or co-founded several local organizations including ¡CityArts! and has been an inspiring force in Providence’s South Side. In 2012 the award was presented to Senator Sheldon Whitehouse for his decades of public service to the state of Rhode Island and his work with the National Endowment for the Arts.
The 2013 awardee will be honored at this year’s Art Blossoms Gala – the annual ¡CityArts! fundraiser to support arts education programming – to be held May 2, 2013 at the Providence Art Club.
Providence ¡CityArts! for Youth is a community arts organization with a mission to provide free professional arts education to Providence youth between ages 8-14. ¡CityArts! now serves over 1200 youth in afterschool and summer arts programs citywide, offering meaningful learning experiences in visual art and design, performing arts, and creative writing. Our work is inspired by the creative process of art-making and the exploration of ideas and concepts that shape our communities and everyday lives.
