Just a short post to let you know my latest piece for The Huffington Post is up — my first for the Education page there! The piece is about The Odyssey Project, which I’ve been involved in for over a year now. The Odyssey Project brings incarcerated youth to UCSB for a theater workshop and performance alongside undergraduates. It’s a powerful testament to the potential for arts engagement to challenge the dismal recidivism rates for incarcerated teens. Check it out and pledge to the kickstarter if you dig the idea of arts-based intervention challenging the school-to-prison-pipeline.
I hope you’re having a wonderful summer.
