UCAN Recognized for Social Innovation by Madison Magazine

 Urban Community Arts Network (UCAN) is honored by and thankful for the M List Award we received from Madison Magazine on November 12th of 2015.

The M List, as described by Madison Magazine, is "a who’s who of organizations and individuals who are having an impact on our local culture and economy."  For years, UCAN has worked to create opportunities and build infrastructure in the local urban arts community while forging partnerships with area teachers, community centers and youth service organizations.  We are thankful to be recognized for our efforts and grateful to see other local entities recognized for effecting positive social change in our city.
