Community~Word Project - 2003

Funded in March, 2002: $22000 for 1 years
The Dana Foundation grant allowed CWP to expand their teaching-artist training and internship program that trains artists in teaching skills and community interaction. They also expanded 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.
