Access to the ArtsCommunity & Education
Arts Festival (FAF)
is committed to creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for all members of the community. The FAF believes everyone should have the opportunity to experience the transformative power of the arts, and the FAF continues to make that a reality through its Access to the Arts (ATTA), a community and education initiative.
ATTA was established in 2001 with the goal of reducing barriers to world-class programming and expanding opportunities for the community, especially those who are underserved, to attend FAF events at little or no cost. The initiative has grown over the years and now offers arts scholarships for those who excel in the flamenco arts; dance and music programs; concerts for children; and fiscal sponsorships to support those who seek funding for their special projects.
Please read below about the many aspects of ATTA.
“Receiving this award is a tremendous honor. This scholarship will be extremely helpful in funding lessons and travel to rehearse with my mentors, and it will be an enormous help with my expensive costumes that will bring my appearances to another level.”
“My time during the FAF workshops throughout the years has been nothing but an extraordinary learning experience for me. [They have] allowed me to have these amazing opportunities to work under and experience time with renowned flamenco artists.”
“I’ve had the pleasure of participating in several of the flamenco guitar and cajon workshops that the FAF offers our community. I am appreciative of [the FAF] for bringing the best artists from Spain to perform and teach. The FAF is like a vacation to Andalucía, right here in S.B.”
