PlatformKids is an annual showcase of K-12 student art and performance. Along with the Polk County Public Schools Department of Fine Arts, and with generous support from GiveWell Community Foundation, we work with art teachers from public, private, charter, magnet, and home schools across Polk County to exhibit student art. All artwork submitted is accepted, which means a wider range of students having space and opportunity to show their work in the public realm. We also coordinates with many dance studios, band classes, choirs, drama and poetry clubs, and other performance groups. For this free family event, the performances are a favorite part of the evening. Add all this together, and we have a diverse crowd, a multi-genre showcase of visual art and performance, and a fun party all in one.
