Community Word Project - 2002

Funded in March, 2002: $27000 for 1 years
The Dana Foundation grant will allow CWP to expand their teaching-artist training and internship program that trains artists in teaching skills and community interaction. They also will expand their Professional Development workshops for classroom teachers to integrate child-centered creativity into the classroom. The program requires a one-year commitment from artists who receive training in a twenty-week training course followed by a five-month internship.
