Yes we did! artblog just got a new grant from Knight Foundation for our new Artist and Social Responsibility (ASR) Program, an unprecedented collaborative approach to learning, with undergrads from 7 local colleges and teens from the Village of Arts and Humanities. This new program brings undergraduates and teens together in a college class to learn about, discuss and debate art and community art practices. Learn more about the program here.
Knight jump-started our ASR program but we need additional funding to pay the teacher, who is independent of any of the colleges; organize a public forum; and provide stipends for the teens at the Village who will be “apprentice college students!” Make your tax-deductible contribution to artblog through our non-profit PayPal account!
