The Arts Council of the Valley awarded six Advancing the Arts grants for this 2012-2013 academic year. During March 2013, the creators of Residence and Refuge, a five-week writing and photography workshop made possible by an Advancing the Arts grant, worked closely with the Mercy House after-school program to offer elementary and middle school residents artistic skills with which to tell their stories.
