“Since being introduced to PASC, I have witnessed amazing work come to life and the incredible joy it brings to the artists, especially when it is shared with the public. This program has such a positive impact on the community because it shows the magic we unlock when people are shown a path to express themselves creatively.” – James Benjamin Franklin
