Are you awake?

With just a fraction of a typical Broadway production's budget, we're able to create a program unlike anything students have seen before. Your contribution will make a huge impact in the lives of young people.

Want to show your support? Give us your lunch money!

Project Awake is a program of abrasiveMedia, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations that helps artists grow, connect, produce, and give back ot the community. Your contributions are U.S. tax deducible.

Project Awake - helping students realize their similarities, gain respect for their differences, and unite to make their schools a better and safer place for all.


School bullies don't just steal lunch money - they take joy, confidence, peace, and a sense of belonging that all students need to thrive. Using the power of performing arts, we are preventing bullying and violence in Tennessee high-schools.

Your lunch money, just once per month, will help us continue doing that!

So what are you waiting for?
