Urban Gateways 1993 Annual Report.
Fishman, Nancy; Jacobs, Barbara
This 1993 annual report describes the Urban Gateways' efforts to bring creative and performing arts into the schools. Designed to enhance school-community relations and increase participation in the arts, Urban Gateways advocates arts experiences as a way to develop the creativity, expressiveness, self-confidence, and conceptual and problem-solving skills children need to be successful. The program's efforts recognize the significance of understanding the many rich and colorful cultures of society. Urban Gateways is in its 35th year of providing arts-in-education programs to Chicago area residents. The report features the Parent Community Council, young artists, workshops, school assembles, live performances, and new initiatives. Urban Gateways is one of the world's largest and most comprehensive arts-in-education programs. (EH)
