Chasing Freedom$25,000

Creative Youth Productions, Inc. (CYP) will bring the live performance of “Chasing Freedom” to five elementary schools in Bridgeport in 2017. The production was created and developed by youth in CYP who felt the stories taught in school didn’t reflect their experience or history. This project supports recent federal legislation requiring all public schools to have arts education. CYP will collaborate with Bridgeport Public Schools and work to receive district funding to expand into additional schools.
