Utilizing Hemi’s resources and connections including artistic mentorship, and administration direction, to help 2050 Legacy grow and flourish as an organization.
Casita Maria Center for Arts & Education
Casita Maria Center for Arts & Education’s mission is to empower youth and their families by creating a culture of learning through high quality social, cultural, and educational opportunities.
In spring of 2015, 2050 Legacy was awarded the Artist in Residence position at Casita Maria for a 3-week development residency to engage the Bronx community in workshops and perform a staged reading of their work in progress, Catalyst. This residency was integral to the development of our work, our community reach and the expansion of 2050 Legacy's ensemble. See more on Casita Maria's website here http://www.casitamaria.org/legacy
Casita Maria continues to be a cultural haven for artists and a pillar of support for the ensemble.
