Launched in 2014 with a grant from ArtPlace America, the Outside the Box series in Miami is open to the public, and features performances by artists across disciplines to engage the community. YoungArts provides rehearsal space, technical and production assistance, and other resources to encourage participants to innovate and collaborate with other alumni and emerging artists.
In celebration of YoungArts’ 35th anniversary, the “Transformations” series comprises five short films created by groups of alumni in various disciplines, and will culminate in a world premiere for the public on the YoungArts campus. The theme draws parallels between the organization’s growth and evolution since its founding in 1981, and the critical formative period YoungArts Winners experience from adolescence to adulthood. The program provides selected alumni an opportunity to collaborate, exchange ideas and create new work that reveals unique interdisciplinary connections—such as between dance and writing; voice and cinematic arts; jazz and photography; music and design; and visual art and theater.
