In this section of the website, we highlight the many initiatives that are taking place as part of the Improvisation, Community, and Social Practice project. ICASP's researchers, partners, and stakeholders have created many diverse initiatives through their work and research. This section of the site profiles selected projects that have been carried out by some of these energetic, thoughtful, and creative people. Featured projects will be updated from time to time, so be sure to come back to this section to see what's new!
