Want to have your voice heard? Eager to share your thoughts about what YOU are experiencing?
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.
This program is already underway. Please stay tuned for September performance dates announcements, which will be shared with the community via streaming services through our website!
Donations of all sizes create artistic opportunities for hundreds of youth and adults each year.
