Young Audiences of Northern California partners with Eden Housing, an organization that provides low-income housing to families around the bay area, to launch Where We Live: Community Housing Workshops. This program bring arts experiences into the homes of San Francisco Bay Area children and their families.
YANC launched the pilot program at Eden’s newly opened Alta Mira Family Apartments in Hayward this past fall. Professional teaching artists conducted hour-long visual arts workshops on-site, on weekends and after school, at no charge to residents. As part of the program, art created by children at the workshops was collected, professionally photographed, and printed on canvas to display as artwork in hallways and other common areas of the apartment complex.
