Cross-Sector Impact Grants
Through theatre,â€¯the Metro Collision Project will give incarcerated youth tools and a platform to discover and share their voices. Teens at the Metro Regional Youth Detention Center (MRYDC) will gain literacy skills and confidence in their creative abilities. They will learn the value of their voice, how to speak up for themselves and their communities, and ultimately change their narratives. This is aâ€¯cross-sector partnership between the Alliance Theatre, MRYDC, and Kennesaw State University.
