organization

1) creates space for voices, opinions and attitudes toward life for young creatives, teens and young adults by conducting surveys to identify topics that are important to them.  2) utilizes a “six degrees of separation” approach to access and invite a network of contemporary celebrities as guest artists to participate in virtual conversations with young people that investigate the ties between art and life.  3) began as a Miami, FL based project that forged community partnerships with local like minded youth organizations to present FREE monthly master classes and workshops in and around South Florida. 4) transitioned to online programming to widen our reach due to the pandemic.

 

If you could go back in time, what advice would you give to your younger self?

NOTES TO MY YOUNGER SELF

Our intent is to offer extraordinary opportunities for youth from various cultural, religious, geographic and racial backgrounds to creatively participate and explore self-identity through advice from various celebrity artists.  By highlighting the story and the journey of artists from similar communities and who share similar backgrounds, young people can better understand their own lives, their own story, and how to best navigate the world that is currently working to redefine itself.

 

If the world’s going to get better, it’s going to be up to you. With everything suddenly feeling like it’s up for grabs, this is your time to seize the initiative. Nobody can tell you anymore that you should be waiting your turn. Nobody can tell you anymore “this is how it’s always been done.” More than ever, this is your moment — your generation’s world to shape.

- President Barack Obama
