2021 PuSh Youth Programs

January 07, 2021

How youth and emerging artists are pushing the conversation in 2021.

Over the past 18 months, we have been in dialogue with youth, emerging artists, and the organizations supporting them to understand how we can best build meaningful relationships and incorporate their voices.

“Among the responses was the overwhelming message: Involve us. Give us opportunities. Pay us for the work we are doing. Having youth gather is great but it doesn’t mean you are actually prioritizing or centering our voices.” – Natalie Tin Yin Gan, Youth Program Consultant

We approached this year looking for opportunities for youth and emerging artists to be a part of the conversation as well as lead it.

We would like to thank TD Ready Commitment for supporting these initiatives as part of the Accessible PuSh Program.
