Galloway House: “Cap & Dagger”

There is a precedent for Cap & Dagger students to tour shows at high schools in order to excite students about the arts. Our house is a space to strengthen bonds between students, a communal space of our own where students can convene and create. The Cap & Dagger house bolsters individual passions within the arts and creates the community environment in which the intersection of those passions transform into works of art entirely new and exciting.
