VOICES at The Murphy Arts Center
February 1, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm
We are so proud and excited to announce that this Februay The Murphy Arts Center is going to be hosting the group VOICES collaborating a variety of young artists together for one night. We could not be more thrilled to have this group participating.
Since 2010, VOICES has been working to change the narrative of some of our most vulnerable youth in Indianapolis. Our mission is to enhance the lives of youth through an expression of self, community involvement, and providing options that will empower them to change their lives.
When VOICES students enter our program, the cumulative effects of violence, trauma, cyclical poverty, and lack of high-quality educational opportunities all diminish students’ desire and ability to be the best versions of themselves. Our students report finding comfort in vices that consist of distance, addictions, abuse, depression, anger and distrust. It’s not just a gun, or a drug that’s a vice to today’s youth, but something rooted deep inside.
We aim to break these vices and help them find their voices. By, creating safe spaces for youth to share lived experiences and begin the healing process as a collective community; we have seen real impact in our three focus areas: Mental Health, Crime Prevention/Intervention and Education.
Our students have amazing stories of survival, strength and are brave enough to share their collective experiences in a way that gives them back power over their stories and empowers a community.
