During a time when funding for the arts has been significantly reduced, In the Upper Room believes that it is vitally important for grass roots organizations to step forward and bridge the gap created by the elimination of organized arts programs and educational opportunities. Quite simply, In the Upper Room believes in taking a caring and sharing approach to art advocacy and community outreach services.
Founded in 2010 by Shaana Roy and Michael Riley and sponsored by Pritchett Associates, In the Upper Room’s “U R Future Artists” is a continuation of the legacy founded by Sister Dottie Neal and continued for so many years under the leadership of former hosts, Anthony and Terri Carter.
Drawing on the experience, talent and passion of hosts Shaana Roy, Michael Riley and others, In the Upper Room is channeling its resources and focus into creating fun and unique learning and developmental programs for our young people.
In the Upper Room is supporting and celebrating the excellence, achievement and personal development of our children through their participation in the Arts. In the Upper Room is proud to present "UR Future Artists," Hosted by Shaana Roy and Michael Riley.
