These statistics are more than just numbers, they tell a story about the realities our students face each day.
Project Awake will begin as a live theatrical production in the schools. Through dynamic storytelling and mind-bending performing arts, our production will uniquely depicts the everyday lives of students. By highlighting their common challenges and showing the effects their choices have on one another, we’ll create an opportunity for students to realize their similarities, gain respect for their differences, and unite to make their schools a better and safer place for all.
Project Awake will continue the inspiration online, giving students access to online media and support resources – including a list of local organizations that provide students with opportunities to use their talents and abilities to bring positive change to their communities.
Phase Two: After debriefing from the completion of Phase One, the next phase will begin with another round of fundraising. We will be scaling everything up in order to take the show throughout Davidson County and the rest of Middle Tennessee. Goals for this phase include maintaining diverse voices in every aspect of the programming; paying all performers, technical staff, and admin staff at competitive rates; reaching as many schools as possible; and ensuring that the partner resources offered to students maintain a high standard of excellence with demonstrative and measureable results.
