New Growth:
Collective Futures

New Growth: Collective Futures

Root Division is thrilled to present New Growth: Collective Futures, our annual Arts Education Celebration. New Growth showcases student artwork created throughout Root Division’s free after-school Youth Education Program. We partner with a collective of youth-centered organizations to present dynamic live performances alongside hands-on all-ages art-making activities. Piloted in Fall 2003, we are celebrating 20 years of our Youth Education Program and providing free arts education to local youth. This year’s theme, Collective Futures, focuses on how the program has developed over the years and how we can envision a Collective Future together.

New Growth: Collective Futures will include interactive artist-led creative stations and spirited live music performance by Latin Jazz Youth Ensemble.

New Growth 2024 is generously supported by a SOMA Community Action Grant administered by Success Centers—a joint initiative with the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development and the SoMa Community Stabilization Fund
