Contemporary Art Workshop Series

Out Loud is an artistic platform for youth voices in the LGBTQIA+ community. Through explorations in contemporary art and the creation of a museum exhibition featuring their own artwork, students build their capacity for self-expression, develop personal identity and cultivate a sense of agency as important contributors to our society. The program promotes a safe space for interactions with peers, mentors and the greater community, helping students build positive social connections and share their experiences with others.
