Rise and Shine is a program that offers classes, workshops, and mentoring in the arts to youth and young adults at risk followed by opportunities to celebrate their work through exhibits, readings, and performances at the Cultural Center. Hundreds of students from all over the Cape have taken part in this program, one of the Center’s finest contributions to the region. 

Thanks to funding by individuals, corporations and foundations as well as the Massachusetts Cultural Council and Local Cultural Councils, the Cultural Center is able to pay qualified artist-teachers to lead workshops at the Cultural Center and in schools , as well as one-on-one mentoring throughout the year. 

For more information about Rise and Shine — how to book a workshop, engage a mentor, or donate to the program — please contact our Director of Learning Diane Giardi at
