Here are a few stories about how Creative Action students have made an impact on the Austin communities:
1000 Cranes for Luis- On November 29, 2011, Luis Lopez Flores was killed while walking home from school. Ojeda Middle School’s Creative Action Film and Art Clubs worked on this project to help bring healing to Luis’ family, their school, and to themselves.[youtube id=”5KNq9GoVIns” width=”600″ height=”350″]

In 2011, Creative Action (formerly Theatre Action Project) summer campers made this video to stand up for other kids’ rights.

Bagavagabonds: Produce with a Purpose- Bagavagabonds spent a day in a Creative Action After School program to give students the opportunity to create art with a purpose. The artwork painted by students that day was then sold at a gallery to benefit Creative Action.
