MRP Inc. makes the arts accessible to diverse populations through outreach programs and the presentation of socially relevant work. Our definition of diversity is not simply a description of race, class or ability, but includes the non-traditional audience member.
MRP Inc. designs arts programs for schools and non-profit organizations that find ways to use art to facilitate the organization’s mission and goals.
We also strive to expose underserved and “at risk” populations to the performing arts by involving them in the creative process or making the arts available to them.
|Sample Arts Facilitation/Outreach Programs:
• 3-week theatre, dance and history program about Immigration and the Civil Rights Movement for 9th graders
