Festival to showcase youth media and arts

April 20, 2010 9:00:00 PM PDT
In New York City - where more than a third of the population is foreign born and many children speak languages other than English at home - it's essential that youth possess the knowledge and skills for a diverse world. That's why the education nonprofit World Savvy, along with more than 1,000 students from 11 New York City schools, will explore the themes of immigration and identity at the 3rd Annual Global Youth Media and Arts Festival Celebration.

Join these students for a day of stunning self-expression through visual and performance art!

WHEN: Friday, May 21, 2010, 6:30 - 9:00 p.m. (The Immigration & Identity exhibit will be on display at the NYU Commons Gallery from May 19 - May 26)
WHERE:   NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human      Development's Commons Gallery
     34 Stuyvesant Street, New York NY, 10003
