ARTISTS IN EDUCATION PROJECT: 39 Scenarios
5:00 - 7:00 PM

Our Youth Advisory Board artists will present a new project led by teaching artists Meredith Leich and Nina Rodriguez. Youth artists explore the intersection between storytelling and performance art by asking the general public to become active participants in an original freeform story. Participants enact scenarios created by the youth artists, to be photographed and re-formed into new narratives.
