Worth the Work
Posted 19 July 2018 12:00 AM by Simon Freitas
Working with the City Spotlights program this summer has been energizing to say the least. The creativity brought into the space by the teen leaders on a daily basis invigorates not only their fellow peers but also has quite a positive effect on the staff. In addition, the theme for their final showcase "Lovin' Ain't Easy" is absolutely amazing. This is not only because of how relevant the message is, but also due to the fact that it is bringing out art that resonates with people on such a deep level.
Throughout the past few weeks I've been working with the acting specialty, which has been an interesting challenge, since the majority of the plot is developing in that specialty. However, this seems to be pushing the teen leaders to produce extremely relatable and realistic content that is able to communicate their message and connect with their audience. It has been so exciting to see this group grow together and I am living in anticipation to see how far they will be able to take the work they have put in.
