ArtistsInspire $1500 School Grant Applications Are Open: Help Us Spread The Word!

I’ve been teaching drama for twenty years. I was in a funk. And so I thought, I need something new, something fresh. I was very, very, very pleased [with ArtistsInspire] . It got me motivated again. It was so dynamic, I wanted to participate, it wasn’t just the kids!” 

– Teacher Deborah Moram, Laurentian Elementary School (SWLSB)

In the words of the teachers, Stories & News
