Community Arts

Community arts makes arts accessible to all. Seen this way it is a social and civic practice. The arts help us make meaning of our world. They allow us to look at the world from different vantage points and in new ways. Through empathetically designed projects we engage communities in sharing stories. The echoes and resonances of shared experiences create a sense of belonging.
Together we work towards arriving at a better understanding of the journey we are on and the world we share.
