For Spring 2015, the Arts Council authorized a special grant initiative for a 2015 Summer Arts Internship Program. The program provided current or recently graduated high school students with summer employment that exposed them to the day-to-day operations and activities of Hyde Park-Kenwood’s diverse non-profit cultural organizations. This was a pilot program with application by invitation only to Hyde Park-Kenwood organizations previously funded by the Arts Council during calendar years 2011 through 2014.
Grants totaling $14,450 were awarded to five institutions who hired 11 students to participate in the program. Continuation of this grant initiative is being evaluated based upon reports from participating organizations.
