Artify is a dynamic youth leadership conference that brings youth (ages 13-19) and supportive adults from across the Metroplex together to build youth leadership skills, equip youth-serving professionals with tools for supporting youth in leadership roles, and expand youth-adult partnerships in the Metroplex. In addition, Artify seeks to :
1) Show that experiences may inform who you are, but don't have to define who you are.
2) Build a sense of inclusion and belonging.
3) Demonstrate that the fine arts can be used as a tool for creating community change.
4) Provide support and space for youth to practice developing messages of change.
Artify features dynamic speakers, whose messages will inspire participants to pursue their passions and act in the face of adversity.
During break-out sessions, participants will engage in meaningful conversations in small, tight-knit teams to develop strategies for creating and promoting community change. Have a dream that you want to follow? Are you frustrated by not having your voice heard or a lack of progress in seeing your dream become a reality? Want to connect with other leaders who are doing similar work? Are you a youth-serving professional who wants to be more effective in your work with youth? If you answered yes to any of these, Artify is the place to be!
Join us from June 23-24 at the University of Texas at Arlington School of Music (700 Greek Row Dr, Arlington, TX 76013) for a two-day conference that is sure to bring you one step closer in achieving your goal. Feel free to share with friends, family, and others who may be interested.
