About the Project

Help Gateway Performance Productions continue to provide educational programs and services for all ages -- including programming for senior citizens and youth as well as for at-risk and under-served populations.

Your contribution is tax deductible. Every $1 you give will be matched by $1 from
the City of Atlanta. $1 becomes $2.  $100 becomes $200. Even small donations
of $1 or more are helpful.

Educational Programs
Outreach
Educational outreach programs include creative writing classes with Sandra Hughes  -- Gateway’s award-winning Producing Artistic Director and Teaching Artist. These free ongoing classes are  presented in partnership with the Atlanta-Fulton County Public Library System, the Helene S. Mills Senior Multipurpose Facility and the Auburn Neighborhood Senior Center. Drama, mime, mask theatre and visual art workshops will be presented for families and youth with Sandra and award-winning company co-founded Michael Hickey as instructors.  Exhibits and performances will also be presented.

In-House
Affordable educational programs at Gateway’s 18-year-old venue, The Mask Center, located in the Little 5 Points Center for Arts and Community will include beginning, intermediate, advanced and master classes in acting, mime, mask theatre,visual art and Irish percussive dance. Special programs will be presented that include a Literary and Culinary Arts event that features a Vegan Cooking Class and an orientation to Vegan History along with a Creative Writing Class focusing on the importance of healthy food, followed by an open mic spoken word public performance by  class participants.

Gateway’s programs have been presented locally, nationally and internationally for the live stage at theatres, arts centers, festivals, conferences, colleges, universities, schools and other community venues as well as on television, film and radio. Sandra Hughes has received the following awards: Outstanding Partner/City of Atlanta, Outstanding Community Service and an Unsung Hero Award from the Fulton County Aging and Youth Services Department in Atlanta.
