For many, Developing Artists is a symbol of Hope: What we like to call RELENTLESS HOPE.
During these tumultuous times, as our young artists continue to fight for justice, no matter what obstacles are put in their way, they continue to meet each other, their allies, and even foes with love and acceptance.
When young people are more susceptible to being pawns in a culture war, when they are still being dismissed as irrelevant factors in major decisions that have a lasting impact on society, their hope provides an alternative: a better way of living and thriving in the world.
Their hope persuades us to save our planet.
Their hope motivates us to pursue equality and justice.
Their hope inspires us towards a better future.
The world may have shifted, but there is an ongoing need for teens in New York City to create art and use it for peaceful protest. It is imperative that Developing Artists does everything it can to continue providing these teens with the tools to be heard and succeed.
