In Our Own Words: Youth Development and the Arts
- Saturday, November 7, 2015 - 1:00pm to 3:00pm
Chicago is home to a vibrant youth development and youth arts community. We see the artistic work of young people on stages, gallery walls, and parks across the city but we rarely have the unfiltered conversation with the youth or their program partners to hear, in their own words, what youth value or find challenging about the work they do.
This event will feature brief performances and presentations by the youth; an unfiltered interactive discussion with youth about the arts and their role in development; followed by a Q&;A dialog with their program partners.
Chicago Park District’s Arts IIIX Program: Patsy Diaz and Regina Raygoza.
Chicago Park District's TRACE Program: Valerie Bonds, Alexandria Eregbu, and Ivan Salazar.
This event is a component of the Arts in the Parks: The People's Studio exhibition.
This event is free and open to all ages.
