Urban Artisans (UA) develops vocational skills in young adults. Students with and without disabilities learn transferable, pre-vocational skills through making, marketing, and selling artwork in a professional studio. The primary goal of the program is to help young adults, ages 16-22, transition from school to the workplace. The UA program is held in the ArtMix adaptive studios and received the 2015 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award recognizing it as one of the nation’s best creative youth development programs.

Young Actors Theatre will invite IPS schools to join them for performances of their Court and Woods programs completely for free. The Court was originated and developed in 2009 by the executive staff of the Young Actors Theatre to meet the need for Indianapolis teenagers to engage in meaningful experiences with relevant social issues. The 2016 campaign will focus on drug abuse and the recent heroin epidemic in Indiana. The Woods, which is an audition-only intensive program, will re-imagine three classics: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Anne of Green Gables and The Secret Garden, all three of which will take place at the Indianapolis Central Library.
