Project Description

The William James Association promotes work service in the arts, environment, education, and community development. Our major concern has been transformative arts experiences in nontraditional settings, working with prisoners, high-risk youth and parolees.
The William James Association creates and manages arts and cultural programs in fulfillment of the following statement of purpose: “The Association takes as one of its major concerns the promotion and encouragement of the arts as reflective of universal human aspirations and contemporary social realities.” Not only can the arts reflect these aspirations and social realities, creative artistic experience can transform them. While we also promote community service in environmental, education, and community development projects, our major focus is to provide creative arts experiences in non-traditional contexts in order to provide this kind of transformational experience for populations, which would otherwise not be thus exposed.
