PSA is a wonderfully diverse organization that has been infiltrating arts to Nashua’s downtown since 2012. In a mission to create global communities focused on the arts PSA has created a Nashua to Honduras Outreach Team. Members of PSA Nashua have gone to Honduras and established connections there in efforts to teach street dance and work on murals. The outreach team will soon return to Honduras on March 22nd through 29th with scheduled sharing of their experiences there with the students here in Nashua at the local PAL via Skype dance offs and shared painting.
