Tracing the Enduring Effects of Community Arts Programs (TEECAP)

TEECAP aims to explore how participating in community arts programs influences the career and life trajectories of people who come from communities where such programs are based. Working in collaborative partnership with community arts programs across the US, Australia, and United Kingdom, the project will examine the potential shaping force of OST programs on identity formation and the influences on life activities resulting from participation. The study intends to shed light on the capacity of creative communities of practice and OST programs, in particular, to impact the life experiences of marginalized youth.
