The Community CollabARTive

Comunidad Colaborativa

The Community CollabARTive began 14 years ago as a partnership between local artists and and the staff and clients of Peter & Paul Community Services. The primary goal of the CollabARTive is to create group cohesion among residents of the transitional housing programs, as well as between residents and staff. Outside of CollabARTive meetings, Peter & Paul staff mostly interact with clients on a professional basis, pushing them to build life skills. The CollabARTive art process places, however, PPCS residents and staff on the same level as they become art students, instructed by local artists in a variety of different art forms, such as creative writing, dancing, drumming, sculpture, and painting. Residents and staff succeed and fail together, and learn to relate to one another on a personal level.

The CollabARTive also gives PPCS residents an opportunity to document their journeys from homelessness to independent living through the different artistic mediums. Check out sample artwork here.

La Comunidad CollabARTive comenzó hace 14 años como una sociedad entre artistas del patio, y el personal y los clientes de Peter & Paul Community Services. La meta primordial de CollabARTive es crear una cohesión entre los residentes y el personal. Las relaciones del personal de Peter & Paul con los clientes, fuera de las reuniones de la CollabARTive, es fundamentalmente profesional a fin de motivarlos a adquirir buenas aptitudes y habilidades para la vida. No obstante, el proceso artístico de la CollabARTive sitúa a los residentes de PPCS y al personal a un mismo nivel a medida que se convierten en estudiantes del arte, instruidos por artistas del patio en una variedad de diferentes formas de arte, tales como la escritura creativa, el baile, el tambor y la batería, y la pintura. Los residentes y el personal comparten sus logros y fracasos conjuntamente, y aprenden a relacionarse unos con otros a un nivel personal.

La CollabARTive también le ofrece a los residentes de PPCS la oportunidad de documentar su trayectoria, desde que carecían de vivienda hasta que llegar a vivir independientemente, gracias a los diferentes medios artísticos. Mire una muestra de las obras de arte aquí.
