ASAP will host special projects this year, including a film project in honor of the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech and a new photography program for the greater Waterbury youth in collaboration with the Police Activity League of Waterbury.

In addition, offerings will include the 2013 Metamorphosis Project with the sixth-grade class at the Waterbury Arts Magnet School; the Moschen Math and Music Project with artist and juggler Michael Moschen, who will lead fifth-graders of the Forbes School in Torrington in an exploration of the vast possibilities of learning math, science, and language arts using his newly developed techniques; and the Music in the Schools Project with Litchfield Schools, bringing students from Litchfield and New Haven counties together with musicians from the Waterbury Symphony Orchestra.

ASAP will also present four events this year: the second annual Celebration of Emerging Artists, the third annual Celebration of Young Photographers, a program with Pilobolus and the ninth annual Celebration of Young Writers & ASAP Benefit Auction.
