Powerful Stories: Building Collective Power Through Storytelling - Twin Cities

We're told we are the leaders of the future, but young people are ready to lead now. And we're ready to tell our stories. Our stories are powerful, and we can use them to make our elected officials listen to us. Our stories are important, and deserve to be heard. Our voices should be celebrated, and our experiences should be valued.

The Minnesota Youth Collective has been talking to young folks across the state to find out what issues are affecting us the most. Powerful Stories will be a chance to have a discussion around those issues and more, to learn how to use your story to advocate for issues you care about, and a space to tell your story to others.

RSVP on our facebook event!

Power to the Youth Art Gallery

Art bleeds into all aspects of our lives. It transforms our politics, brings together our communities and provides an opportunity to understand activism from multiple lenses. This is why Minnesota Youth Collective is hosting an art gallery with the theme of Power to the Youth. From paintings to spoken word to dance performance—we want to showcase the talent young people bring to Minnesota and the ways in which we are building power for ourselves.

And we're still taking submissions! With permission, visual art will be put up for sale and all the funds will go back to the artist.

Submit your art here: bit.ly/2Msb4TY
