In the summer of 2013, the first cohort of YoungStarters took their ideas and creativity to the streets of Vancouver. Here's a look at how the program unfolded and what impact it had on the young artists and their community.
YoungStarters initiatives are youth-led collaborations that allow young people to take the lead in arts based community projects. The month-long summer program is designed for creative-minded, ambitious young people between the ages of 14-18 in the Greater Vancouver area. Working in teams and partnered with mentors who are professional artists, musicians and administrators, YoungStarters participate in workshops to develop project ideas, with a $1,000 budget to realize their vision.
