Youth Encuentro Brochure (PDF)

The Youth Encuentro is an opportunity for our community to learn more about itself, its history, its present condition, its challenges, and its dreams. The Youth Encuentro is also an opportunity for praxis – a space and a moment to unite intellectual development with action, activism, and civic participation.

The Encuentro will include workshops on media art production, a public forum for community based organizations, and a concert featuring politically conscious artists. The Youth Encuentro will be an opportunity to learn new art skills, develop relationships with local social justice organizations, and celebrate our cultures through music and dance. Through the Youth Encuentro, we plan to kick off a summer of arts and community empowerment.

REGISTER FOR THE YOUTH ENCUENTRO

The Youth Encuentro is open to everyone. No one will be turned away. But, we encourage you to pre-register for the workshops of your choice.
