Through the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts’ Arts Across America series, Youth on Record and members of Colorado’s expansive creative community present Founding our Future: An Arts Declaration of What’s Possible.
This collaborative performance centers the voices of our nation’s youth, while amplifying the untold and unseen histories of the Colorado west through poetry, dance, music, video, sound-art, and story-telling. In this one-of-a-kind digital showcase, Colorado’s prophetic artists will do what they do best -- create a vision about what’s possible when we build a nation where all people have a seat at the founder’s table.
Stay tuned after the performance for a live talkback with youth performers to learn more about what they envision for the future of their communities and their country.
My Youth on Record Interrupted is a podcast where artists share how their personal, professional, and creative lives are transforming in the time of coronavirus
We interrupt your regularly scheduled podcast to bring you stories, observations, and interviews from community artists who - like you - are experiencing the unprecedented, the mundane, the absurd and the interrupted daily life in a world that changed nearly overnight.
My Youth on Record (MYOR) is a podcast where artists share the music they created as teens, and the stories behind the songs.
Every artist starts somewhere. Some made music in their basements, and wrote love songs in their biology notebooks. Others were obsessed with that one mind-blowing band who seemed to write music just for them. At some point, they all felt inspired to make their own music.
