The highly-regarded Brooklyn-based Asase Yaa Cultural Arts Foundation, which is celebrating its 18th Anniversary this year, has scheduled an Open House event at its new location, PS 21 on Saturday, April 13, 2019 from 4:00 – 6:00 PM. The Foundation relocated to PS 21 in early January. They have also announced plans to extend registration for an additional thirty students (ages 4 -13) to attend their popular Children’s Summer Arts Camp. The six-week camp commences on July 1st.
Osei Williams, Asase Yaa’s Executive Director explained, “We’re extremely grateful and feel a debt and gratitude to all our constituents and the amazing community support we’ve been given over the past 18 years. We’re excited to welcome them to our Open House at PS 21, which is larger than our previous location. The added space at PS 21 has enabled us to expand our programs and classes to serve more disenfranchised youth from the community,” he added.
Those who attend the Open House will be able to pre-register children for the camp at a special reduced rate. Attendees will also be able to meet Asase Yaa’s directors, teaching artists and group leaders. The event will also feature a 15-minute orientation that will cover Asase Yaa’s curriculum and classes for its School of the Arts, Community Arts Outreach Program and professional African American Dance Theater. Light hors d’oeuvre’s and non-alcoholic beverages will also be served.
