Youth Jam

Vines and art ecosystem have joined together to curate a new Summer Youth Jam Program, inspired by our Park Post Up collaboration of Summer 2022!

Lexi Mellish Mingo and Karmella Cen Benedito De Barros will be hosting the Jam.

During each Youth Jam session we will open with a one hour workshop, share food, and then break into three groups for separate jam sessions. The Youth Jam Program will run a total of 3.5 hours each day.

The Youth Jam Program will conclude with a final fourth day - August 12th at Pandora Park where program participants will perform/share with their jam cohort as a part of the Vines Art Festival 2023 programming.
