Ignite social change through art in this free after-school program! Identify a current social issue and explore it through theater and creative writing workshops, where creativity sparks and conversation flows between teens, teaching artists, and industry professionals. The program culminates in the creation and performance of a new theater piece.

In this program, students:
・ Attend free performances, master classes, and discussions with guest artists
・ Critically engage with a social justice issue of their choice through research, creative writing, and theater workshops led by BAM teaching artists
・ Collaboratively create a new theater work
・ Perform their original work onstage at BAM’s Fishman Space, open to friends, family, and the public

Application deadline: December 9, 2019

All students must complete an online application and interview to be considered for the program. No previous experience is required. BAM will cover the cost of performance tickets and MetroCards on days of performances.
