Inner-City Arts provides students with the tools and skills they need to succeed academically and personally.
College and career preparation
Training, mentorship, and real-world experience necessary to prepare young creatives for professional life beyond high school.
Creative home for innovative and diverse performances
Nurturing and illuminating creative space for young people and adults in the community. Students create, present, and experience new work; many performances open to the public.
"We have created a learning environment that goes far beyond experimenting with art supplies and playing dress up. It is a bridge between the demands of the often-difficult lives of our children and the world of academic achievement. Our young people have a safe place to create and believe in the brilliance of their own future."
– Bob Bates, Co-Founder & Co-Artistic Director
