About this grant

This grant will support a year-round fine arts program for Flint’s innercity youth. One of the goals of the Floyd McCree Theatre is to instruct African-American youth in the fine arts and provide a venue to display their talent. Despite bold efforts made by several community organizations, including the Flint Youth Theatre, there is still a need for more youth-centered urban arts. To address the lack of accessible fine arts education, the Floyd McCree Theatre will offer fine arts programming that will train students in drama, music, and dance.
