We Still Live is a community-based art venture with Arts Street and nationally renowned Denver artist, Thomas Evans, designed to initiate change. This project aimed to provide arts-based pro-social alternatives to the influences of gang recruitment and community alienation for Denver area youth. Youth, ages 14-21 explored self-identity and cultural heritage and contributed to their neighborhoods through creative community impact projects.
Arts Street @YEA’s mission is to help youth break the cycle of generational poverty in Denver communities by gaining personal and economic stability through education, arts and technology and creative employment training. We use the power of the creative arts to empower youth to purse future education and employment opportunities. We harness their talents, provide them with real-world experience in creative industries and help them build valuable skills for the future through arts-based programming.
