RISE: The Isolation Project

9 - 18
Mondays at 3pm on Zoom

We are excited to announce an original writing and performance project for youth, by youth, exploring the impact of coronavirus on their lives, entitled, Rise: The Isolation Project. The program will be 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.

Want to have your voice heard? Eager to share your thoughts about what YOU are experiencing? 

Participants will 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 will serve as NWT's Fall Youth Production.
