A showcase featuring the work of youth involved with the Massachusetts Department of Youth Services. Youth performances & presentations with acknowledgements from key adult partners. Selected pieces of youth art will be available for purchase.
DYS' partnership with Commonwealth Corporation (Arts InFusion) expands and integrates the arts into the academic and extracurricular programs for all youth in DYS residential facilities, and builds a network of arts-related placements available to DYS youth as they transition back into their home communities.
Arts InFusion provides youth the opportunity to ‘showcase’ their talents, creations and voice to an audience beyond their residential setting through a culminating performance and/or celebration. This celebration happens annually at DYS' youth showcase, “Share Your Art, Share Your Voice."
