New Design High School presents
KRUSH GROOVE 2008 - FUNDRAISE THE ROOF!
Satuday, June 7, 2008
Doors open at 1:00pm - 11:00pm
Krush Groove 2008 is a benefit for New Design High School art integration programs. Krush Groove will combine music, art, dance, food and film to create an outdoor community festival on our very own city block rooftop.
The New Design High School (NDHS) is a small academic high school that serves the varied needs of students from all over New York City . Located on the lower east side of Manhattan , NDHS offers students rigorous and literacy-based instruction. Additionally, we utilize the design process to teach creation, revision, and presentation in many areas. Our student-centered model of education supports the intellectual, social, emotional and artistic growth of each student. Through a commitment to the visual and design arts students develop the imaginative, creative and intellectual capacities to question, think deeply, take risks and express their ideas.
Due to city/state-wide budget cuts announced in early February, the school is being forced to discontinue numerous Arts integration programs, which include after school and summer initiatives. Programs that enable us to keep our youth off the streets and more importantly in a creative learning environment.
All proceeds of the event benefit New Design High School Art integration programs.
