Introducing the First Cohort of Halcyon Arts Lab Youth Fellows

New this fall, the Halcyon Arts Lab Youth Fellowship -- a program created to engage youth seeking to catalyze change through art and creative innovation.

In partnership with DC Prep, Halcyon selected eight DC Prep alumni from high schools across the District to create social impact arts projects in collaboration with Halcyon Arts Lab’s Fellows and with access to resources at Halcyon Arts Lab. That means space, time and access for our youth to think big. 

What will the Youth Fellows be able to do?

  • Create socially engaged art projects with guidance from a Halcyon artist mentor
  • Participate in workshops and field trips to learn best practices and concepts in social practice, while building resources to become a catalyst for change 
  • Showcase a social impact art project at the end of the fellowship
