On February 23, PTAC was invited to accept a grant awarded by the Citizens Interested in Arts (also known as the CIA) at the Grantees on Parade: Keeping Arts Alive in South Florida event. The function was hosted at the wonderful Aventura Arts and Cultural Center, a waterfront theater overlooking the Aventura marina and Sunny Isles Beach coastline.
The main mission of the PAMM Teen Arts Council has always been to use ambassadorship and mentorship as a way to lead other groups, both teens and young adults, into entering art spaces and engage among peers. The council uses its resources to expose people to a world that can seem remote and unreachable to everyday people, while also creating a platform for its members to strengthen their artistic talents and gain new skills in leadership and mentorship. With this generous grant, we will be able to succeed in and exceed our goals. Once again, all the members of PTAC would like to extend our thanks for CIA and their contributions to the arts community.
