Central Florida Community Arts (CFCArts) announces it has been approved for a $10,000 Grant for Arts Projects award from the National Endowment for the Arts to support the CFCArts UpBeat! Musical Theatre Program.
UpBeat! is a performance group for teen and young adult exceptional learners, and it produces multiple performances each year, including both plays and musicals. It is open to actors with a variety of special needs, including (but not limited to) autism, Down syndrome, and ADHD.
This grant will keep the program low-cost or entirely free for participants and will expand offerings to include a summer show, programs for younger participants, and technology for a blended model of in-person and virtual programming.
CFCArts’ UpBeat! is among the more than 1,100 projects across America totaling nearly $27 million that were selected during this second round of Grants for Arts Projects fiscal year 2021 funding.
“Making the arts accessible to everyone is a pillar of our mission as an organization,” said Joshua Vickery, founder and executive director of CFCArts. “We are so thankful for the National Endowment for the Arts’ role in ensuring this program’s sustainability.”
