Visit to Learning Community Charter School in Central Falls

Michelle and Rachel got to play for the first "Chew & Swallow LIVE" at the Learning Community Charter School (that's the time during lunch when students typically stop talking, listen to recorded music, and eat their food! this time it was a little different...)

Fiddle Project is on

You can sigh, you can cheer,
but in either case, if You're also on Facebook,
you can be one of the first to like the RI Fiddle Project here.

In 2010, RI Fiddle Project programming was made possible in part by a grant from the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, through an appropriation by the Rhode Island General Assembly and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.  Now there are serious challenges to future NEA funding.  Below there's a link where you can send an automated or personalized email to your elected representative about this.
02/15/11 Amendments Introduced to Reduce/Eliminate NEA Funding
Two amendments have been introduced relating to the funding bill for FY 2011 currently being debated on the House floor that would further cut/eliminate funding for the National Endowment for the Arts.  The first amendment offered by Rep. Garrett (R-NJ) would zero out funding for the NEA completely;  the second amendment of concern is offered by Rep. Walberg (R-MI) and would reduce funding for the NEA by a further $20.5 million. Write your Representative and tell him/her to vote against these amendments.
