Dear Friend,

"That is the goal of these classes. To reach those who seem to be unreachable right now."

Last fall, Upstream Arts piloted our first series of free online classes designed for adults in our disability community, often living in group or family homes, who are experiencing heightened isolation from their peers and loved ones during the pandemic. These classes were such a success that we’re thrilled to offer more weekly sessions beginning in February. To learn more about what it was like for us to reach members of our adult community at this time, Communications Assistant Elle Thoni spoke with Cristina Castro, an Upstream Arts Teaching Artist who took on the task of connecting across distance through targeted outreach.
