ArtStream’s ($2,500) two Virginia-based Inclusive Theatre Companies feature 30 people with Intellectual and Developmental disabilities (IDDs) – including Autism - performing in original musical productions. The actors, along with volunteer peer mentors and a professional production team, decide on a theme, improvise scenes and characters, and develop a script, songs, and choreography. Your generous sponsorship contributed to the production expenses for a Drive-In Theatre performance that bought the ArtStream community together to celebrate our actors’ achievements on the big screen!

Arlington Presbyterian Church ($3,600) sold their land to Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing, tore down their building, and helped create Gilliam Place, a 173-unit affordable housing apartment community on Columbia Pike and Lincoln St., the site of APC’s previous building. It’s here, in the ecosystem of Gilliam Place, that APC lives out the ways of faith together. APC is dedicated to supporting their Gilliam Place neighbors. One way they show that support is through accessible programming. A strong interest in taking music lessons was discovered at a community event.

Professional music lessons in Arlington can range from $40-$60 for half an hour. This cost creates an inequitable barrier for the residents of Gilliam Place and South Arlington. To provide equity, agency, and access to professional music lessons, APC provides half hour music lessons to residents for a reduced or free cost, based on their individual needs. Residents have access to professional teachers who live and work in the Arlington area. The program fosters stability and a weekly creative outlet. Students build confidence as music that once seemed impossible becomes playable. The weekly lessons also foster community, as neighbors and families bond over their new art. The $3,600 grant from the IPC Endowment will allow three Gilliam Place residents to receive a full scholarship for 34 weeks of lessons.
