Arts-Based Advocacy in Action

The University of Nebraska Medical Center’s Munroe- Meyer Institute, in partnership with WhyArts, is presenting a series of free, arts-based advocacy sessions for transition students this summer. Under the guidance of WhyArts teaching artists, the sessions are helping participants develop communication, advocacy skills and self confidence while exploring a variety of media. Students age 18 to 21 who are enrolled in an area transition program are eligible to participate, and there is no cost to attend.
