The Readers of Homer partnered with artworxLA and the Los Angeles Public Library on an educational program for at-risk high school students.  Students in LA’s continuation high schools worked with professional artists on creative projects that explored the poetry and themes of Homer’s Odyssey.  A Journey Home engaged over 500 students during the 2013-2014 academic year.  It was part of artworxLA’s ladder program using the arts to combate the high school drop-out crisis. 

 

Presentations of student work were held in the Mark Taper Auditorium at the Los Angeles Central Library on October 29, 2013; February 20, 2014; and May 27, 2014.  The presentations were free and open to the public.
