NEW YORK CITY -  This Project is not happening summer of 2018

If you are an art, theater or dance major apply to the Transform Project.  This two week intensive will give you a behind the scenes view of what living out the life of an artists looks like with artists who are doing it.  They will help you gain a realistic understanding of what it takes to survive but they will give you tools that will allow you to thrive.
