Birth of an Arts Education Program--Inside Out Community Arts
In 2006, Teaching Theatre magazine profiled the impact of the theatre-arts inner-city youth program Inside Out Community Arts. The organization had not only received the prestigious Coming Up Taller national award, but it had been part of a university research project investigating the impact of arts programming on self-esteem and other issues for youth. Take a look at the California Arts Council's article (first published in February of 2006) that explored how the program got started and the reasons why the Inside Out leaders are so dedicated to after-school arts programs.
