This year, the Momentum youth committee have put together a lineup of artists and events that will make the festival a weekend to remember. As well as being a fun space to hang out and catch some amazing performances, Momentum aims to support local artists and youth. Best of all? The entire festival is FREE.
The festival line-up starts with a concert featuring Smash Boom Pow and Cheondoong Korean Drumming. Programming also includes an arts industry panel, a variety of workshops, a swing dance party with Royal City Swing, and an Open Stage event with Two Gents of New West.
In addition, this year Momentum has partnered with the Anvil Centre’s New Media Gallery, DOXA, and the New West Film Society to create “Mediated Visions,” an exciting day of programming designed around the New Media Gallery’s new exhibition: Witness.
Presented by the Arts Council of New Westminster and produced by Massey Theatre, Momentum Youth Arts Festival is programmed, organized and driven by youth. The Momentum Youth Panel consists of seven youth from New Westminster steering the arts programming for the festival.
