The SMARTS Summer Institute, the flagship program of the SMARTS Collaborative, has offered young people a unique opportunity to work with some of New England’s finest artists as they explore and learn through process and performance in creative writing, dance, drama, film/video, instrumental, vocal and visual arts and there’s swimming too. Open to children ages 5-18, the Summer Institute is about ideas, innovative and dynamic thinking and collaborations. It is the only opportunity in southeastern Massachusetts for arts interested and talented young people to have exposure to so many arts, taught by so many different artists, all under the same roof. The summer program runs during the month of July, 8:30-3:30 PM. Before and After Program available 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
The creative work and discipline training revolves around a unifying theme that provides fertile ground for collaborations between the arts disciplines and helps to foster a range of perspectives. Recitals, the creation of outdoor community art works, Lunchtime Open Mike, a Talent Show, Elective Showcase, final performances, literary magazines and social events are part of the creative electricity that takes place during this intensive 4-week immersion into the arts. Over 1200 people attend the Summer Institute’s recitals and performances.
