Strengthening Youth Leadership

Transforms Communities
 

The Performance Project brings people together to create theater and visual art through multi-generational collaborations. Our members participate in artistic training, inter-generational mentoring and leadership development. We claim a public voice, engage audiences in dialogue about oppression and liberation, and celebrate our humanity and connection through the arts.

  • Being a community of many languages
  • Intergenerational and Intercultural alliances
  • Life-long caring relationships over multiple generations
  • Access to quality educational and professional opportunities for our members

  • Critical independent thinking, youth leadership initiatives, public voice, and civic engagement
