Dignity Through Performance


Each year, Rainwater Innovation Grants enable Butler School students to create meaningful projects within the city of Austin, often times with elements of social justice. This year, doctoral candidate Abbey Young used her grant money to put on a concert featuring formerly homeless musicians. She purchased instruments, recording equipment, and spent months rehearsing with several bands in preparation for the show. Watch the video for the complete story!
