Have you ever wondered what makes a successful community arts project? What are the essential components to begin with? And how do all participants ensure that their needs and goals are met?

Angola Murdoch of Lookup Theatre on Talk to Youth Lately, a social circus program for youth focused on emotional well-being.
Cheryl L’Hirondelle on Why the Caged Bird Sings, a songwriting and recording workshop she offers in correctional institutions.
