The Youth Evening of Arts was a mini arts festival happening in Vancouver’s westside.The event was for youth by youth, which I love. I believe in young people coming together to share positive energy, to collaborate with each other and be able to showcase who they are in a safe environment. This is what fuels my idea behind Arts in the Park and why I got involved with YEA.
I believe in youth having opportunity to explore and have opportunity to be exposed to what other youth are doing and I think it’s amazing how much of that there is in Vancouver. I want to keep that trend, because if I dream of anything at all, it’d have to be a world where people can think and spread ideas that other people react too. I believe everyone should be heard and a part of it.
There was a button making station, art displayed, cool interactive activities and lots of young folk like me, eager to step their little feet into this pool of thought-change. I performed three poems to the kind audience and realized my potential as a stand-up comedian on my artistic butchering of my last line of my last poem.
It was a great night, with great purpose and great people ❤
