Due to Covid-19 we know that many in our disability community are more isolated  and removed from their communities, and it is our hope that our classes will be a place  where small groups from around our community can come together for a weekly 1- hour  experience with Upstream Arts Teaching Artists who will lead interactive theatre, dance,  music, visual arts, and poetry activities – designed to build community, connection, and creative expression.
