VSA Festival packs Westfield MainPlace in celebration of creativity, inclusivity (video)

Back in March, the Newsroom previewed the 39th Annual VSA Festival, which represents a partnership between OCDE and the arts organization known as VSA California.

Well, the all-day festival took place this past Saturday, drawing waves of participants and spectators to Westfield MainPlace in Santa Ana.

Celebrating creativity and inclusivity, the April 18 event once again spotlighted the artistic talents of students and adults enrolled in various special education programs, showcasing their artwork as well as their talents in writing, dance, music and even theater.

If you weren’t able to make it, most of the artwork is expected to remain on display at the mall through May 10. And here’s a brief video of the opening ceremonies, courtesy of OCDE’s Media Services team.
