Work by CG Youth Program artists Alex Beltran, Christopher Hernandez, Erik Kadono, Lena Salk, Madison Bandy, Naomi Minaka, and Will Glasser is included We Rise in Downtown Los Angeles.
We Rise is a 10-day pop-up festival of art and community building, uniting collective efforts to stand up and help create a city, state, nation and world that fosters empowerment of health and wellbeing as a civil right. Through programming, live performances, immersive workshops, wellness events, and a world class art exhibition, together we will manifest an era where youth are supported to reach their fullest potential and our communities can thrive. Held in downtown L.A., this event is free and open to the public. Visit www.werise.la for event details and specific times.
The Creative Growth Youth Program is offered from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM on Saturdays to young adults ages 16-22 with developmental disabilities. It gives high school students with artistic inclinations the opportunity to explore art with the possibility of transitioning into the Creative Growth adult program.
