Youth Agency in Participatory Democracy through Art

Through my studies in Theatre for Youth and Community, I have investigated digital and community-building strategies that successfully allow young people to actively participate in civic and political conversations. In my work with and for youth, I often find myself turning to these strategies as a way of embedding emergent and effective practices for youth to not only participate, but lead in projects that are actively for or about them.
