Arts Alive!: 2001-2002 Project Report

August 31, 2002

Embracing HAI's mission of Hope and Inspiration through the Arts, Arts Alive! targeted New York City youths from schools and districts most affected by the September 11th attacks. Between January and June 2002, Arts Alive! arranged for more than 10,500 New York City schoolchildren to attend cultural events with classmates, parents and teachers. Arts Alive! engaged children who had lost a family member, children from schools with a direct view of the WTC, children from schools in lower Manhattan forced to relocate, children in schools that absorbed relocated students, and children from schools in the lower Manhattan and New Jersey areas.
