Special Projects

CWP 2.0 is a young adult program bringing together arts, technology, and college and career exposure.

13 Community Word project students and two teachers stand in front of downtown skyline.

CWP 2.0 broadens students’ horizons through public art making, networking, college events, and public speaking opportunities.

CWP 2.0 is a college and career exposure program. CWP students from NYC public high schools – with the guidance of Teaching Artists and our partners in education, New York University and Georgia Tech – make interactive public art, interface with innovative technology, lead curriculum design, and participate in networking events. Students are involved in the development of the project’s scope and direction. And they are co-designers of the culminating project.

CWP 2.0 students generally placed a high level of importance on the fields of arts and technology when they enter the program. At the end of the program, arts and technology remained at a high level of importance or increased for students to varying degrees.

100% of student participants said the job of artists is important or very important, an increase from 86% pre-survey. 57% of participants said it was important or very important to learn about programming and engineering, an increase from 21% pre-survey.
