Engaging hundreds of community members in Public Programming

Often the issues which have the biggest long-term environmental impact in our cities are invisible to the eye. CALL's core mission is to engage the people impacted in envisioning a more sustainable future for the cities and neighborhoods they live in. CALL believes that artists can have a sigificant impact on making these intangible challenges visceral and real. 

Through artist-led public WALKS to WORKSHOPS, FORUMS, PANELS and PROGRAMS, CALL reaches hundreds of people each year, helping them to participate in initiating change from the micro to macro level.
