Making Justice project residencies brings a local teaching artist to Dane County Juvenile Detention Center, Dane County Juvenile Court Shelter Home, Dane County Jail, or GROW Academy to offer intensive exploration and development of a skill or project. When possible, we aim to align the residencies with public school vacations to provide more in-depth learning experiences for teen residents while the on-site teachers are out of the office during Winter Break, Spring Break and Summer Break.
