|Homeless Youth Arts Collaborative | Cambridge | 2004
This project proposed a year-long visual art instruction program for homeless youth aged 14-24, who were members of Youth On Fire, a program of Cambridge Cares About AIDS, the multi-service center in Harvard Square for homeless youth. Members received weekly art sessions to create three public events: two public murals and an open studio night held in conjunction with Cambridgeport Artist Open Studios (CAOS). Distinctively, this project showcased the talents of these youth while at the same time engaged the community in an important social issue. This project supported an underserved population using the arts as a vehicle for personal expression and public education.
