#StellaAdlerOutreach and #BewilderArts Present OutSideIN,
an innovative ensemble performance & talk back event for BewilderArts participants.
April 30th, 2016
Stella Adler Studio of Acting
31 W 27th Street, 2nd Fl "To me, this program means FREEDOM, in a world filled with oppression." - Kelly, Stella Adler Outreach Participant
On behalf of Stella Adler Outreach, BewilderArts is humbled to extend a special invitation to educators, artists and activists. On Saturday, April 30th, OutSideIN will conclude its launch tour with a special matinee performance of "The Learning Project", followed by a talk back for BewilderArts and our growing community.
OutSideIN is a groundbreaking new education program providing an artistic home and FREE Actor Training for students who have trained with the Award Winning Stella Adler Outreach Division in classes inside jail at Rikers Island, or in the drug and alcohol recovery program at Phoenix House or while transitioning back home through organizations like GOSO. They are joined by members of the studio's alumni and faculty, training every weekend. From this foundation the ensemble identifies a theme and collaborates on writing a body of original new work for the theater.
Last Spring, Stella Adler and BewilderArts presented “Actor Warriors & Artivists: Your Role in the Arts Activist Movement,” an in-depth workshop day exploring Stella Adler Outreach work at Rikers Island and Phoenix House. We are thrilled to be partnering with Stella Adler Outreach again this year, with a unique opportunity to see how this theatre education endeavor has grown into an innovative producing ensemble within the historic Stella Adler Studio. #StellaAdler #TeachingArtists #Artivists #ArtsActivists #ArtsEd #DevisedTheatre #NYCTheatre #Drama #NYCWorkshops #NYCArts #BetheChange #Acting #NYCActing

Thank You for an Incredible Year!
What an amazing year it's been for BewilderArts! With new and returning participants, stellar facilitators, and esteemed generous partners, we explored the expansive worlds of Arts Activism, Arts Education, Community Building, and Sustainable Arts.
We cannot wait to see where our community-led programming takes us in the New Year. We have already begun mapping some new areas of possibility, including Music, Self-Taught Art, Body and Movement, Differently-Abled Arts, and Arts in Early Education.
BewilderArts will remain dedicated to keeping our programming free, open, and communally created. We encourage you to share your ideas with us! If you are able to contribute monetarily, ALL donations help to keep BewilderArts' work accessible and are tremendously appreciated. Our website offers a comprehensive look at how each and every bit ensures greater outreach and a wider variety of thoughtful and thorough programming.
Thank you to everyone who shared creativity, ideas, questions, enthusiasm and wonderment with us this past year. You really helped to make 2015 spectacular. See you in January!
Founding Director, BewilderArts
Some great moments from this week's two-part "Arts Education in Action" conference with @centerforartsed and some marvelous #ArtsEducators & #TeachingArtists. We had a great time and send a special thank you to all our participants for bringing your creativity and energy to the conference. Stay tuned for what we have planned for 2016 - and, as always, feel free to pitch us some ideas for the new year!
