The great playwright George Bernard Shaw once said, “Youth is wasted on the young.” While our reflex response is to agree with Shaw, I seriously believe that as a society, we can change that. How? By creating safe-spaces where our young folks can express themselves, unlock their creative souls, and promote the ideas that are relevant to their generation. Our multidimensional world requires multi-sensory ideas and solutions and that is what the arts cultivate in all of us. In these days of constant information, our young folks are generating not only new ideas, but new paradigms! Their collective potential to change our unsustainable ways of living is something we must invest in.
Join us in celebration of our Empowered Youth
Young folks are adept at multiple modes of expression: visual, musical, kinesthetic. They have the potential to change the world, and we have a responsibility to give them the tools with which to accomplish it! In that vein, we are very excited and honored to have Warehouse 508 be our guest programmer for our Youth Day theme! “Warehouse 508 is Albuquerque’s biggest youth art and entertainment center located in downtown Albuquerque. We offer a safe, structured and supervised facility to young adults and youth. Warehouse 508 provides a variety of programming and events that are youth driven, and youth focused.”
