Be part of the supportive, enthusiastic audience lucky enough to see this one-of-a-kind performance by at-risk and high-risk youth ages 7 – 21. These young performers are part of Express Yourself Milwaukee’s unique immersive arts program in which visual art, music, dance, drumming and spoken word are used to discover self-expression, develop inner strength, and deepen connection with others.
Guiding our work this year is Kintsugi — the Japanese art of golden mending, which honors the damage and repairs in an object as part of its history rather than something to disguise. Often, the repaired object is even more beautiful than the original. After a year of exploration and discovery, see what our teams of youth participant and staff artists have to share!
