NEW URBAN ARTS
September 18, 2009

NUA is one of the most incredible communities I've ever been a part of. The studio gives everyone who walks through the doors permission to be themselves, to grow, to experiment, to be honest, and to share. There is some sort of indescribable magic that happens at NUA. Every single time I came to the studio I left feeling more hopeful and happier than when I arrived. This place is a positive influence on everyone who is a part of it in any way. I really wish that more people could experience it.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the opportunity to be in an environment where everyone is learning from everyone else. Sometimes mentors are students and students are mentors. Traditional barriers between the "student" and the "teacher" are gone, allowing more learning to take place.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

the kindest, most down-to-earth, enthusiastic, and caring people that I've ever met in one place.

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

host more students, more mentors, and more volunteers.
