Become a patron of youth-led creative change by becoming a sponsor of #ArtsForward!
#ArtsForward is Youth Rise Texas’ annual showcase of the artistic and cultural productions of our youth movement-makers. This year’s event will feature the works of our Digital Storytelling project, a collaboration with Texas Folklife, and Tunnel Vision, the final work our Theater Arts Project which will premier during Fusebox Festival .
Sponsors of #ArtsForward help us to ensure that we are able to continue providing cultural arts programming every school year to an ever-increasing number of youth who have been harmed by criminalization through the detention, deportation, or incarceration of a parent. Centralizing the arts in our youth programming is both a tool for personal healing and a mechanism for amplifying their voices as we work toward culture shift around mass incarceration and immigrant deportation. Your gift pays for our collaborations with local cultural arts partners, materials and equipment for our youth artists, and the costs associated with producing, sharing, and performing our works!
Sponsorships provide additional perks including an ad in our program, event tickets and more! See Sponsorship Levels to the right >>>
