our young people have voices
that are often taken for granted, disregarded, or silenced, globally.
the i am project is an initiative designed to bolster creativity and elevate awareness of our young creatives in both vibrant and underrepresented communities. by bringing together indigenous cultures, we create an introductory dialogue spoken through the eyes and ears of our future artistic leaders. the subsequent conversation will forge a lasting imprint for future generations of young people.
in everything we do, we believe in defying popular taste for original design. by doing so, we challenge the status quo to think differently about presentation and education. our programs seek to establish alternative exhibition and listening spaces for indigenous art and music of young people to be exhibited and performed.
our young people have voices that are often taken for granted, disregarded, or silenced, globally. yet there is a conversation happening amongst them, generally relegated to geographic and demographic identities. by giving our young a platform where their voices can be heard, we begin to hear a narrative that may be global in spectrum that identifies their commonalities in their concerns about the world they are living in and one day will inherit.
through art and music they will begin to realize that their voice is not alone and that others have the same or similar concerns. they will start conversations and expand their choices as their curiosity and creativity begins to embrace other culture’s art and music. our young will see and hear their evolving world through a different lens while preserving the genius of the aesthetics of art and music.
