This month at BAA: BAA Foundation hosted BAA Honors 2022, BAA hosted a Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration, presented at Boston Fashion Week, and performed with Urbanity.
On Saturday, October 8, BAA Foundation hosted its largest fundraiser of the year for Boston Arts Academy: BAA Honors 2022! This was the first major event BAA Foundation hosted in three years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Over 400 guests attended and raised $2.3M in support of BAA students. Student majors in Dance, Music and Theatre performed, and majors in Fashion and Visual Arts displayed their work.
Four students in the Fashion + Tech program at Boston Arts Academy were invited to be part of The Peers + Pros Project at Boston Fashion Week. The project is a creative learning initiative sponsored in part by Koch Institute Public Galleries. Students designed looks and worked with a team that included professionals at Koch Institute Public Galleries, MIT Museum’s Maker Lab, Boston Public Library’s Teen Central, and School of Fashion Design, Boston.
BAA hosted its first Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration in its beautiful theatre. The assembly included performances and a showcase from students studying dance, music and filmmaking, as well as remarks from special guest speaker and BAA alum '05, Abraham Olivo.
Urbanity's Company danced alongside students from Boston Arts Academy, and Brighter Boston students worked behind the scenes managing stage lighting and technical elements for the Call of Courage show. Call of Courage is a five-part collaboration featuring choreography set to stories of perseverance from Boston’s youth.
