Idea Series

The Youth Assembly, now in its second year, is a free performing arts conference for youth between the ages of 16 to 24 who are curious or passionate about pursuing a career in the performing arts. There will be a focus on youth engagement and tackling issues relevant to emerging artists. The Youth Assembly—a full day of workshops, presentations, and critical dialogue—is part of an important global discourse and your chance to contribute, network and build community. Afterwards, join us for a performance of Concord Floral for only $5.
