Breaking Barriers Latinx Youth Conference is a day of art, music, and community dedicated to Latinx youth, presented by the teens of the ESB-MACC Caminos Teen Leadership program. On February 22nd, teens will collaborate with emerging artists and cultural activists to facilitate exploration and self-expression around the theme of “breaking barriers”.This year our teens have chosen to take a closer look at what 'Mental Health' means and how does it affect our many communities.
Conference activities will include screen printing (bring something cool to print on), graffiti arts workshop, interactive art stations, we4lnness activities led by teens, music performances and much more. This event is uniquely created BY teens, FOR teens.
