In celebration of New Urban Arts' 20th anniversary, Brown University is sponsoring a panel discussion that will touch on the work the community arts studio does within the community. Founded in 1997, New Urban Arts is a nationally-recognized organization for high school students and emerging artists in Providence aimed at fostering creative development with the arts and humanities. Three members of the Brown community are founders of New Urban Arts, which received extensive support from the Swearer Center in its earlier years. Focusing on the topic of creative youth development, panelists include New Urban Arts staff members, volunteers, and students. A reception and workshop will follow, but registration is required. The event is sponsored by the The John Nicholas Brown Center for Public Humanities, the Swearer Center for Public Service, the Brown Arts Initiative and the Brown Alumni Association. The panel discussion begins at 11 a.m. in the Granoff Center for the Creative Arts, Martinos Auditorium, 154 Angell St.
