Community Spotlight: Michael Callahan, Education Champion

In Celebration of 25 years of doing good in our community, the Arts Council would like to take some time and highlight some of our fantastic members who are doing great things in our community.

Teacher at Cascade K-8, Arts Grant Recipient

Michael on the arts:

I think you're going to get better scientists, engineers, and mathematicians as a result of the kind of divergent thinking that the arts are contributing. Creativity is something we need in this world to solve alot of problems.

How do the arts make an impact?

Art allows some kids who may not be successful in some areas to find success in an area and we build on success, and that’s what education is all about. Art is important to all kids because it supports creative expression, (and) creativity is something we need in this world to solve a lot of problems.

Why should someone support the Arts Council?

I always get the feeling that (the Arts Council is) there to support me. They say “What do you need to get the job done? Explain to us how it’s going to impact the greatest number of kids.” I appreciate that in an organization, because we have limited funds so it’s important that we see the greatest return on investment.”

Join Michael and become a member of the Arts Council. Individual memberships start at just $35, and you’ll not only receive great member perks, you’ll also get to bask in the warm glow that comes with knowing you’ve helped foster creativity in your community. Stand with your neighbors who together, over the last 25 years, have invested over $3 million in arts and arts education right here in Shoreline and Lake Forest Park. 

The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to nurture and support the arts in Shoreline and Lake Forest Park
