This short documentary captures our students experience at the NO BOUNDaries Project: Young Artist Workshop. Hosted at East Liberty Presbyterian Church, the workshop provided 25 students with the opportunity to work closely with Anqwenique Wingfield on vocal work and stage presence, Yona Harvey on writing, and Jovan Rushton on musicianship. The mini-workshops gave these young artists valuable coaching, tools and tips for collaborating across disciplines and the experience on writing new music and performing it. The students were recruited from Hope Academy for Music & The Arts, Dreams of Hope and Alumni Theater Company.
