The Core is actively involved in the community. We have had a long-standing relationship with the Progressive Arts Alliance, founded in 2002 by Santina Protopapa, a CWRU Music alumna. in June 2010 the Core donated 12 iMacs to the PAA to support their various technology camps. The camps were formerly held in the Core, but this donation enabled the PAA to move the camps to a central location with more space for the students to work. The PAA’s mission is to provide experiences in the contemporary arts that stimulate critical thinking and promote progressive thought. Much of PAA’s educational mission centers around utilizing the popular arts as a compelling educational tool.

The Core also donates older equipment to area schools. If you’d like to discuss a partnership with the Core please contact Dr. Ken Wendt at or 216-368-5456.
