As much as we love Santa Cruz, we as a community always need change. We want/need/can/will make a difference here. We believe that art and creative experiences hold the opportunity for people to connect to one another in new and meaningful ways. We acknowledge that there exists many pockets of various communities among the youth here in Santa Cruz. Why not come together? In collaboration, we can identify and describe our realities through the arts to turn things around here in Santa Cruz. The skills we have developed from working with various art forms has taught us that our voices can be heard in creative formats. By sharing our artistic skill sets, we can empower more teens to get involved and offer a space for change making to happen on the regular with our peers.
