We are still flying high from last weekend! Thank you to everyone who made it such an incredible success.
For those who missed the Showcase stage show and for those who would like to relive some of MSA’s reflections looking back and moving forward, please visit our Showcase page on the MSA website for a wonderful video created by our MSA Cinematic Arts program (as well as a slideshow from the event). This video truly embodies the essence of talent, passion, dedication, and true joy found at MSA.
This year, our Fund the Future harnesses these important qualities and provides opportunities for our students to build their résumés, CVs or portfolios of work. We call this program Creativity at Work, the purpose of which is to expand career-readiness opportunities for MSA artists by offering our recent alumni stipends to come back to MSA and work after graduation.
They have learned so much here—our culture, our ethos, our work ethic—and having them back in the fold with us will simultaneously further their career goals AND enhance the work being done around campus.
We are already seeing the benefits of this initiative in many of our departments, and funding it here will provide more opportunities for more recently graduated artists to come back to our classrooms and help our teachers deliver even more meaningful instruction to even more of our artists. It’s a win-win-win situation for our students, our alumni, and our community.
We are forever grateful for your continuing support of MSA, and we are so very proud of what we are accomplishing together. Please consider giving what you can to support this program, which will help our students while they attend MSA AND provide more guidance to them as they move beyond high school and into their careers.
If you have already given to this exceptional program, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
