2016 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Ants on a Log (Anya Rose and Julie Lipson) will create a musical interactive science show for elementary school-aged children and their families. The performance will provide a creative platform to view science through a feminist and environmental justice lens, and ultimately leave the audience questioning and observing the world around them. Anya and Julie envision a world where performances inspire kids to connect with a passion that fuels them to change the world.
