Pointe West Performances - Infinite Legacy Project
During an 8 year partnership between Pointillism Jazz Consort and the Akron After School Program a dynamic cultural education project came to life: it's called The Infinite Legacy Project. An Akron Public School Master Teacher said of The ILP: "I watched affiliates of the company develop sincere and authentic relationships with the children they were teaching. Their talent and commitment to the Arts were evident in every interaction. . . The impact of The Infinite Legacy Project is immeasurable."
Fall 2011 marks a new era for The Infinite Legacy Project in its new home at Westminster Church of Akron. This will allow community members of all ages access to cultural programming -- in a welcoming space near mass transit (within walking distance of two Metro lines). The ILP mission is realized in new projects yearly, including the ILP Choreography Outreach program available to middle- and high- school students. Each city where Pointillism Jazz Consort presents performances will benefit from the activities of The Infinite Legacy Project.
The mission of Pointe West Performances' ILP programming is "To provide life-changing humanities education (which crosses socio-economic barriers) through meaningful exposure to the cultural projects of Pointillism Jazz Consort.”
