Broadway Stages Is Excited to Support the Community-Word Project in 2018


The Community-Word Project (CWP) inspires thousands of young students in numerous communities to explore and develop their creative arts. The CWP focuses on providing New York children with a stimulating arts curriculum to encourage self development while integrating critical discovery of personal art and personal learning.

The sponsored classroom programs collaborate with visual artists, writers, musicians, photographers, and theater performers, making sure that students can participate in a variety of art forms to expand their creative nature. In fact, each student is able to intimately engage in and explore different forms of art thanks to the student-to-teacher 6-1 ratio central to CWP learning styles. The CWP ultimately seeks to build a community for young people to learn and contribute to the New York arts scene.

Gina Argento, President of Broadway Stages, seeks to enrich the artistic education of over 2,500 students across 22 schools. She is excited to have helped support the project, which has positively impacted students for 19 years. Her sponsorship of the annual CWP benefit Writing Our Future helped raise over $160,000 from the New York community. This year's amazing dedication from community members propels CWP to reach even more students and schools. Gina is excited that more students will receive high-quality artistic education lessons this year and hopes you can join her and the CWP community to reach even more students next year.

Gina Argento and Broadway Stages Support Arts and Literacy

Broadway Stages President Gina Argento strives to create a creative learning experience for children through the Community-Word Project (CWP).

The CWP dedicates itself to educate and develop children from first grade through high school in literacy and the arts. CWP established the Collaborative Arts Residencies program, which partners professional writers, artists, dancers, and musicians together to develop an immersive artistic learning experience for young students.

Gina believes art enrichment is an essential piece of youth and creative development. As a sponsor to the Writing Our Future 16th Annual Benefit, Gina will help provide internship training programs for new teachers and assist in securing financial resources for CWP programs.

Join Gina in supporting CWP to enrich youth education and inspire creativity in New York students.
