NeON Arts: Community Events

Last month, events featuring music, art, film, dance, and poetry took place across New York City in celebration of creative work by participants of NeON Arts, a program of the NYC Department of Probation in partnership with Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute that gives community members the opportunity to explore the arts through projects in their neighborhoods.

Learn more about three of these projects below.
