Review for NEW URBAN ARTS, Providence, RI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

After a long association as a board member, volunteer and financial contributor, I was an Artist Mentor Fellow for the last two years. This means I worked with mentors to help them develop their teaching practice. After understanding the organization from a governance and, frankly theoretical point of view, being a Fellow allowed me to understand the real value of the organization -- and to see, feel, and know how New Urban Arts is an experience of both intellectual and embodied learning for youth and mentors. New Urban Arts is a strong organization in many ways, but it's also a revolutionary organization in its understanding of the dignity of all who participate and in the way that it values creative practice as tool for personal development and social change.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the city and probably the world.

Ways to make it better...
