Free Alaskan Artist Workshops for Youth: Amplify Youth Voices Alaska

COVID-19 has completely changed the way we live, learn, and play. Fighting this pandemic together, Alaskan youth want to influence the community by spreading messages of safety, hope, encouragement, and innovation. Join us, to keep everyone safe. That is why we ask Alaskan youth (ages 10-25) to submit various forms of art (e.g., painting, dance, music, digital, poetry…the list is endless!) that address a monthly theme for our statewide online platform. These submissions and their messages from you, our YOUTH, will be displayed and shared across Alaska.

This month’s theme: One Year Later (How has the pandemic changed the way you live, learn and play?)
