EST/LA is submitting a proposal to the California Arts Council to become a provider for the
Arts-In-Corrections program. This is a great opportunity for our company’s Teaching Artists
to contribute to the state’s rehabilitative efforts for inmates.
Arts programming has been shown to have a positive impact on inmate behavior,
recidivism and rehabilitation success for those prisoners who re-enter society –
helping make both the correctional institutions and the state as a whole a safer place.
Members who work in this program will be paid a stipend. We are particularly interested in members with prior related experience, but we want to hear from any teaching artist who may be interested in this opportunity.
As part of our new Theatre for Young Audiences programing,
EST/LA will partner with TheatreWorkers Project to offer Shakespeare Remixed,
a summer theatre experience for young people ages 6-16.
Active EST members receive 20% on their registration. Space is limited!
Please contact Susie Tanner at estla.edu@gmail for info and to register your child.
