The Grand is proud to announce a new artist residency program in cooperation with the William “Hicks” Anderson Community Center. Throughout the month of July, the newly renovated Community Center will host arts experiences for children, ages 6-12. Youth will be invited to explore a different art form each weekday afternoon:
These recreational opportunities are provided with all necessary COVID-19 health and safety precautions in place in accordance with State of Delaware Phase 2 guidelines. Should any activity offered by the City result in COVID-related health concerns for participants or staff, the activity will be halted immediately for further review.
Summer in the Parks was created in 2013 to provide a variety of visual and performing arts activities for youth and families right in their own neighborhoods. Since its launch, Summer in the Parks has served more than 23,600 participants at 505 events. The program’s success is greatly attributed to collaboration between The Grand, the City of Wilmington, and dozens of civic organizations, educators, caregivers, and other nonprofits who believe in the importance of our primary goal: to provide a safe and creative outlet for neighborhood youth during the summer months.
