From Youth Voice to Youth Power: Support CAT Today
December 21, 2021
On behalf of all of us at CAT, thank you for being part of the CUNY Creative Arts Team's mission to use the power of theatre and drama to support young people, schools, parents, and educators throughout New York City and beyond.
At the core of CAT’s work is a commitment to arts-in-education as being fundamental to every young person’s education. Theatre and the arts create spaces of belonging where people develop the agency needed to interrogate the world in order to make change within it.
For more than 47 years, CAT has worked to co-create spaces that support open, brave, and transparent conversations in which everyone can recognize their power to problem-solve and try new strategies.
This past year and a half has been a time like no other. CAT continues to work in-person and over screens to create theatre, build community, and facilitate dialogue on issues young people care about including racial and social justice, climate change, mental health, healthy relationships, empowerment in their education, virtual drain challenges, and online vs in-person communication.
