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.
