In this space, everyone has as much time as they need to speak and everyone is encouraged to share their creative, unique and extraordinary ideas and imagination. We invite participants to connect with other young people who stutter and make original artistic creations in an environment where it is really, REALLY okay to stutter!
The Confident Voices 2024 In-Person season will run from December 2023 to June 2024 with holiday breaks, and is for kids & teens who stutter (ages 8-18) in the NYC and Tri-State area. With the guidance of expert Teaching Artists and musicians, we will explore a wide variety of creative forms (music, visual art, movement, poetry, creative writing and more). From there, participants will collaborate in small groups to create and polish an original piece.
Everyone is invited to participate in as much of the year as possible and everyone will have the opportunity to share their creations with our community in June! No creative art experience is necessary. We believe that everyone has the capacity to create, and everyone deserves to have a brave space to share their beautiful, honest, original expression.
Two in-person sessions in Midtown Manhattan
