Program Description:


CONNECT TO ASPIRING YOUNG ARTISTS FROM AROUND THE WORLD FOR A TWO WEEK SUMMER IMMERSION OF CREATIVE JEWISH TEXT STUDY, SPOKEN WORD, AND PERFORMANCE
 
Join us on a journey to create a spoken word piece about your life and this moment. Through exposure to creative Jewish text study and leading international changemaker-artists, you will learn how to perform so that your unique voice and words will be heard. Come learn how to tell your story in a way that draws attention to the issues you most care about and hope to create change in.

Over the course of the two weeks, young artists from around the globe will connect virtually and meet other like-minded teens in a way like never before. Through accessing their personal stories and the texts of their shared heritage they will learn how to speak up and speak loud!
