Location: Grinnell College
- Direct service work with children, including prep before and processing after.
- Social media projects such as how to engage with specific audiences in ways that are compelling, and continuing to build outreach of the cross-over of art to other realms. (A sample project is a collaboration with the chamber of commerce and the school district to assemble PRIDE activity bags).
