At The Gloster Arts Project, we firmly believe that exposure to the arts, culture, and history should be available to everyone, especially to children in rural, isolated, chronically underserved areas like Gloster, where there is no public school, no supermarket, jobs or basic services and where children have no access to the arts or cultural institutions.
Besides cultural enrichment, the arts benefit children in so many important ways, including improved self-esteem, confidence, critical thinking skills and cognition. Kids who have access to the arts tend to be high achievers, go to college and become productive, contributing members of society.
NOTE: We welcome children in Grades 1-12th, 6-18 years old. Six year olds must be able to read and write. Recent high school graduates aged 18 years old may also apply. The Gloster Project does not discriminate on the basis of ethnicity, race, gender, sexual orientation or religious beliefs.
This project is supported in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
