GIA 2017 Winter Student Showcase “I Am Other”

GIA had the pleasure and opportunity of servicing over 350 students this 2017 Fall semester and what better way to show off the hard work the students have done than through a showcase! All of our Greenway Students from both our after school workshops & in class residency came together to create a culminating showcase with the theme “I Am Other” directed by our Program Coordinator Maryam Husain. Within this showcase all of the classes was shown and represented through film, documentaries, dance, drama, spoken word poetry & story telling.

Greenway Go!

homepage-brandGreenway GO was designed to provide access to and engagement in the arts to the Los Angeles community. By building on current initiatives, we envision the program as a vital entry point for students and the community to experience a variety of art events for free or for a very low cost. Greenway GO is part of a larger, evolving effort to engage in creative placemaking, accessibility, and true community building through the arts. As Greenway continues to grow and explore a new model for how arts, education and social enterprise can work together to help organizations remain both relevant and economically viable, it is simultaneously important that we find ways to include access points for community members who may be shut out by traditional pricing, location and lack of connection to the art itself.

Our current assets for this initiative are:

  1. The Greenway Court Theatre – Greenway curates a season of theatrical experiences at that include co-productions, original works and curated presented offerings.
  2. Melrose Trading Post – art-based marketplace held every Sunday at Fairfax High School. Greenway’s signature social enterprise program.
  3. Da’ Poetry Lounge is a low-cost, open mic’ poetry and spoken word event produced every Tuesday night, and is the largest, longest-running and most diverse weekly spoken word event in the country, engaging poets of all ages and backgrounds in this standing-room only event. DPL served as one of the inspirations for Russell Simmons’ Tony-awarding winning Def Poetry Jam.
  4. InkSlam – an annual festival of workshops and poetry competitions for all ages, that attracts local and national poets to this popular, three-day event.
