Gloucester Inc.’s New Youth Program to Launch | Gloucester lawyer
Gloucester’s new arts-focused youth program is about to kick off with a kick-off workshop this Friday.
The Friday April 30 event is free for registered teens ages 12-18 interested in all aspects of performance art, from music and theater to stage design and sound engineering. .
According to event organizer Bob Swadling, GACCI hopes to attract a group of young people looking to engage in a stand-alone performance project.
“The Friday workshop is designed to give kids a taste of what we can support them in and also to discover the types of arts that interest them,” said Bob.
“It would be great to see them come together and create a musical production as a band from scratch, doing everything from script writing and music to costume and poster design.
“We really want this program to be driven by what interests the young people of Gloucester.”
As for the launch workshop, it will focus on music, with a young group of musicians traveling from the central coast to work with the participants.
The workshop is open to all skill levels and welcomes even those who just want to be a member of the public until they become more comfortable and want to participate.
At the launch, GACCI hopes to assemble a list of young people willing to participate in the Friday afternoon workshops.
The organization is enrolled in the Creative Kids program which can be used for the very low cost of the weekly program.
The launch of the Espace Arts Jeunesse will take place from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Gloucester Citizens Center, 30 Hume Street.
GACCI has a COVID security plan in place and will require all participants to log in with the QR code.
