Local Award winning dancer Nicole C. De Weever of Art Saves Lives received a US$ 4000 donation from the St. Maarten Golf Association in support of Art Saves Lives Summer Project. The upcoming Art Saves Lives summer intensive program will feature 16 artists from the United States who in addition to teaching classes will perform community service as part of their contribution to St. Maarten.
Ms. De Weever, founder and President of Art Saves Lives Foundation offered the assistance of some of the summer program’s participants to assist the SGA during their tournament which was held from April 5th through 7th at the Mullet Bay Golf Course.
ASLP continues to raise funds to bring this project to fruition to serve local youth who are interested in a career in the arts and strengthen the performing arts on St. Maarten.
About Art Saves Lives
Art Saves Lives Program (ASLP) is a cross-cultural exchange between youth in need and experienced practicing artists who seek to use their talents for positive change. This collaborative project will select renowned artists from around the world who use the arts to introduce participants to global and local traditions and empower them with the life skills necessary to effectively deal with the demands and challenges of everyday life. The program will also provide guidance for young artists with aspirations in pursuing a career in the arts.
The first project, an intensive week long workshop program will be held June 24-30th on St. Maarten.
