We Amplify Voices presents
Four days a week, our talented facilitators lead a year-long arts-based youth program inside Columbus city middle schools.
This program first began fall 2021 thanks to Cover My Meds & Columbus Rec & Parks, with a series of immersive workshops in Song Writing, Visual Art, & Creative Writing.
Thanks to The Ohio Department of Education, we added after school programs at Westmoor, Starling, Buckeye & Yorktown from September 2022 through May 2023.
We're excited about beginning our 2023-2024 youth programming.
"We can light up the darkness around us" - Tyriq, Westmoor MS
Our four facilitators Eric, Jessi, Chase & Kaleb led their groups daily in our after school creative centered programming
In the 2022-2023 school year the groups worked on an array of creative projects, from visual artworks, songwriting, making music videos, learning about and then planning an expressive performance.
We also inspired and nurtured the groups creativity by bringing in local guest artists throughout the program to teach the students more in depth techniques.
Thanks to Franklinton Arts District's amazing visual artists, CATCO's talented art educators, our guest musicians and in house videographer for sharing their craft and knowledge with our groups. Giving them chances to express themselves creatively across different mediums.
