Project Description

How can the arts encourage self-empowerment and exploration of identity? Empowerment through Art: Marginalized Communities will explore existing community engagement models in New York City that serve to empower women who have faced homelessness or are survivors of domestic violence, and develop a unique arts programming model. A reflective essay will detail the findings of Jeanette Chen’s research and process of developing a new programming model.
