Community Building - Arts Immersion
Hoop Suite/Franklin Field Community Day for Arts Immersion
Youth Link has partnered with Boston's Anna Myer and Dancers to give young people a unique opportunity to tell their stories in workshops and performances with professionals, combining dance, poetry, spoken word, rap and classical music to tell the stories on stages and neighborhood basketball courts, and record them on film.
The result has been transformative for young people who have found themselves through genuine self-expression and the self-discipline. Community forms around layers of mentoring and weekly rehearsals. Youth Link can help any community build an arts immersion vehicle that creates shared purpose, empowers youth voices and inspires hope.
