The Pancake Epidemic had the privilege of being a part of Inner-City Arts‘ Summer on 7th event that was recently hosted at their campus in Downtown Los Angeles. The event included a special rooftop concert produced by Spaceland Productions with Peanut Butter Wolf, YACHT, De Lux and dublab.
On the eve of the concert, special guests and those involved with initiative were invited to TPE for a fun kick-off breakfast. Coffee specialist, Brandon Davenport, went down to Inner-City Arts the next day, where he served freshly brewed coffee to all Summer on 7th attendees.
About Inner-City Arts:
Inner-City Arts, widely regarded as one of the nation’s most effective arts education providers, is an oasis of learning, achievement and creativity in the heart of Skid Row, and a vital partner in the work of creating a safer, healthier Los Angeles.
Providing access to the arts and the endless possibilities they offer, Inner-City Arts is an investment in the youth of Los Angeles. Creating a bridge between the studio and the classroom, Inner-City Arts’ unique approach to arts education measurably improves academic and personal outcomes for children and youth, including those students with Limited English Proficiency who are at risk of academic failure.
Inner-City Arts’ beautiful, award-winning campus—a safe and tranquil environment designed to fuel the dreams of children, especially those living in poverty who may believe dreams are for other children—is a source of inspiration to all who visit. During the school day, after school and on weekends, elementary, middle and high school students come to Inner-City Arts to work with professional teaching artists in well-equipped studios, receiving hands-on instruction in a range of subject areas within the visual, performing and media arts.
Equally essential to Inner-City Arts’ mission, the Inner-City Arts – Annenberg Professional Development Program provides experiential training for educators, graduate students and others dedicated to bringing high-quality arts education to students of all ages and backgrounds. Programs for parents and families strengthen families and communities, supporting student achievement both inside and outside the classroom.
