Student internships with Earth Celebrations — a non-profit organization engaging communities to generate ecological and social change through the arts;
Earth Celebrations has worked closely with NYU and Tisch Undergraduate Drama for over 25 years engaging students out our community-based art/theater for ecological and social change projects on the Lower East Side and downtown Manhattan. We have provided credit to NYU students in community and political theater as well as other programs and school at NYU including Tisch, Steinhardt, Stern and Gallatin within the arts, social media as well as environmental studies.
I am also a graduate of Performance Studies MA at NYU Tisch, 1994 and was a speaker at the Climate Action conference at NYU in April on the Vulnerable Communities panel presenting on cultural organizing and arts for ecological change. https://tisch.nyu.edu/performance-studies/alumni/alumni-year/alumni-1994/felicia-young
