Keynote Performance

Changing Lives Youth Theatre Ensemble

Flyer for Showmance - When Jealousy Takes the Stage

The Changing Lives Youth Theatre Ensemble, a collaboration of Creative Action and SAFE Alliance, is a group of youth artist-activists committed to using the arts to make change in their community. Since 2003 this ensemble of youth from across the Austin area has created and toured original performances for thousands of middle school students. These performances use theatre as a tool to help youth foster healthy relationships, celebrate diversity, and spread awareness of social justice issues. Ensemble members will perform a virtual adaptation of their original play Showmance, which will then be followed by a panel where the young artists will share their personal experiences as young artists and leaders in the community.
