Mission: Through community engagement, visits from community organizers, and open discussions, students will delve deep into topics of arts advocacy and access, leaving the program informed on the nuances of these complex issues and armed with skills and ideas to become change agents in addressing these issues.
Every other week, we will visit the Boys and Girls Club of Appleton to help prepare and facilitate arts programming for their youth members. On the alternative weeks, we will meet for dinner with community organizers and leaders who will speak on their experiences and work in tackling arts accessibility issues and community-building through the arts. There may be additional trips scheduled, including a possible visit to the Refuge for the Arts.
