New Urban Arts is an after-school drop-in program where young people and Artist Mentors work together—as collaborators and peers—to develop creative practices which allow them to become more imaginative, and active, community members. The organization’s core program, Youth Mentorship in the Arts, partners about 20 Artist Mentors with small groups of high school students to develop powerful mentoring relationships through the organization’s free yearlong after-school program (October–May). Together, they foster risk-taking and self-discovery through community building and creative arts projects across a range of arts disciplines, from painting to drawing, graphic design to photography, fashion to filmmaking. Mentoring relationships at New Urban Arts emphasize collaboration and youth agency and, as a result, enrich the creative practices of both youth and mentors. Studio Study Buddies are also available to tutor students individually in math, science, and writing as part of the Youth Mentorship Program.
Join New Urban Arts artist mentors, study buddies, and staff for a show of their work on Friday, November 17, from 5:00pm – 7:00pm at 705 Westminster Street. This event is free and open to the public.

Everett is an intergenerational, multicultural company of professional artists that creates original concert works and video productions, carries out a wide range of educational programs, and mentors new generations of young artists. Everett artist Sokeo Ros’ search for his voice took him on a journey all the way back to Cambodia, a country his parents fled over thirty years ago. He met his grandparents for the first time. He learned of his parents’ struggles in the face of war. He began to fill in the void in his history. The result was his one-man show, From Refugee Camp to Project, a multimedia piece that gave expression to his process and his story, reaching a wide audience. Now, based on his experience, Sokeo has created Cambodian Lullaby. A cultural/performance arts program designed to help young people find their voices, Cambodian Lullaby is grounded in the belief that exploring personal stories and digging deep into the past is vital to understanding identity. Young artists Theo, Johanna, and Keily will be the first to participate in the project. Their stories range from refugee experiences, impoverished neighborhoods, living in orphanages, and adoption.
Saturday November 18, from 7:00pm – 8:00pm, at Everett, 9 Duncan Ave. This event is free and open to the public.
