Epic is an artist-run organization dedicated to bringing theatre education with a social justice focus to New York City youth in Title I schools. Epic’s after-school program, REMIX, is a five-month program focused on studying a classic play and producing a reinterpretation to be performed for hundreds of community members. After hiring three REMIX alumni, Epic will use this grant to support their professional development to prepare them for executive positions in the future. The professional development will include leadership training workshops such as Options Institute at Goddard Riverside for training in college access and The Leadership Program. An onboard consultant will assist with project goals and youth reflection protocols.
