Through a shared U.S. Dept. of Education grant, USM and Side x Side are collaborating on Project Imagine, an arts integration program in Portland public schools. As part of Project Imagine, the organizations are hosting a Summer Arts Institute to train Portland public school teachers techniques to integrate the arts and teaching artists into their classrooms.
We will be running a full day white water rafting trip for up to 50 USM students on Saturday, August 29th. Residential students participating in the trip will be able to move into their fall housing asignment on Friday, August 28th between 4pm-7pm.
