Isolation Project 2020

An original writing and performance project for youth, by youth, exploring the impact of coronavirus on their lives. Rise: The Isolation Project is a unique opportunity to unite our youth participants from across our past programming and shows to share their stories, their hopes, and their experiences around the Covid-19 pandemic.

Participants work with local teaching artists to share their experiences to create original scripts and music in hopes to connect, support, and inspire one another and our community. The final project will culminate in a performance that is NWT's Fall Youth Production.
