A M.A.Y Project
A M.A.Y Project is committed to artistically support children as they navigate intersectionality and utilize creative tools as catalysts for healthy social emotional development, positive interpersonal relationships, critical thinking, communication, performance readiness and ultimately social change.
A M.A.Y Project was birthed in 2016 to provide children in Baltimore City creative opportunities to explore self expression, collaborate within an ensemble to establish trust and gain communication skills necessary to participate in constructive dialogue on and off the stage.
Support This Business
Local businesses rely on people like you to support them, so spend locally if you are able to. You can also give them exposure by shouting them out on social media!
From the Owners:
We engage children in Baltimore City through performing arts to promote confidence, communication, creative expression and innovative civic engagement. Our 2020 art & activism project entitled #Stand Now features a song co-written and performed by two AMP youth artists, Caelib (13 yrs. old) and Rashad (8 yrs. old); children of founder, Candace Everette.
"Stand Now" speaks to the impact of police brutality and racial injustice from the lens of children. The original music was produced by their dad and official #Stand Now merch has been purchased throughout the country. "Stand Now" is streaming on all digital platforms. Currently, #Stand Now merch is for sale on line ([www.amayproject.com](http://www.amayproject.com)) and at Moods Music, a black owned vinyl and apparel store in the Little Five Points community of Atlanta, Ga.
Baltimore Montessori Public Charter School used the melodic and visual #Stand Now project to initiate Equity, Professional Development Training for teachers and board members.
AMP is shaking up systems to provoke social and policy reformation while uniting diverse community members through creative and performance art.
