Due to COVID-19 shutdowns, we’ve moved our fundraiser online for a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure built by the great Wes Weddell.

With $18,000 raised last spring, Bushwick Northwest was able to bring STYLE program scholarships to several Title I schools regionally, hire an inclusive staff of teaching artists to help represent the students we serve, and present new programs focusing on social justice. These funds also helped expand The Bushwick Book Club Seattle’s roster of talented local musicians, and build capacity for increased audience outreach and new partnerships with local scholars and organizations.

This year we aim to raise $20,000 to further expand STYLE programs and continue broadening the teaching artist roster, while developing more Bushwick Book Club collaborations with local artists, scholars, and organizations that represent the vibrantly-creative communities we serve.

With COVID-19 guidelines delivered from scientists and officials, we are working to create programming that can be delivered in a virtual format. We acknowledge that it may be difficult to deliver our programs in its “normal” format, but we believe that—with your support—these programs can still make an impact in our community, schools and libraries. While preparing for an uncertain future, we are still focused on delivering a platform for musicians and authors, and for education programs that deliver diverse Teaching Artists and programs to classrooms.
