Adobe Youth Voices Live! 2011 Underway In North America

Last week, the Adobe Youth Voices Live! 2011 kicked off in North America with two fantastic events.

On Wednesday night, the season got off to a great start with Live! in New York at the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. Highlights of the evening included a stellar dance performance by “A Fresh Connection” – a youth dance group affiliated with the Urban Arts Partnership, a screening of 22 youth produced films from the 2010-2011 school year, and most importantly, great conversations between students, teachers and mentors during the reception.

“It was awesome to watch [students] speaking from their hearts and sharing their stories and behind the scenes moments,” said Alex Yamamoto, Project Manager with Adobe Youth Voices.

On Thursday night, an audience of 180 people gathered at the Adobe office in San Francisco, where students from five high schools in the Bay Area screened their films. The audience was treated to a live performance by Jose Saavedra from the Peapod Adobe Youth Voices Academy in Redwood City, who performed “Can I Get A Witness”, a song that touches on the subject of immigration policy and politics in the United States. As in New York, students, teachers and community members had the opportunity to exchange their questions, experiences and ideas during the Live! reception.
