Middle and high school students work alongside professional visual and performing artists to create multidisciplinary storytelling exhibitions and performances that speak out about critical issues young people are facing. Through their art, youth emerge as changemakers, using their voices to tell stories that move people to action.
OutLoud Voices is always free to participants. We believe that all youth deserve access to high-quality artistic resources, regardless of their ability to pay for equipment, supplies, and programs.
