International Youth Media Summit presents
A Celebration of Youth Voices
Saturday, July 26, 2014 at 7:30 PM | Art Exhibit in Lobby at 6:30 PM
The International Youth Media Summit is an annual event that brings together teen filmmakers and teen diplomats from all over the world to explore ways of using media to inspire and empower their generation to take action on urgent social issues. During the two-week gathering, the young delegates create short films proposing solutions to violence, poverty, discrimination, health challenges, the environment, and obstacles to women’s rights and youth empowerment. They learn to overcome conflicts and cultural differences as they work together toward a significant common goal.
A CELEBRATION OF YOUTH VOICES honors their work in a screening of the Summit films and an evening of entertainment across cultures. Groups joining us to perform for the celebration include the Ikeda Youth Ensemble Taiko Drummers, The Lark Musical Society Children’s Choir and Children’s Violin Ensemble performing traditional Armenian music, the Trevor Anderies Jazz Quartet, and a SPECIAL SURPRISE GUEST!
The evening is a fundraiser to provide scholarships to Summit delegates from developing countries.
Arrive at 6:30 to view the Afghan Youth Art Exhibit in the lobby!
Tickets: $25.00/$50.00 priority seating
