Who Do My Parents Really Think I Am?

“Kids are worried about what they’ll be and parents worry about their children not doing anything (or enough) with their life. This piece should give listeners an idea that life is what you make of it.  You can be whatever you wanna be just as long as you start somewhere and keep yourself educated about everything.” -Ryan Lawless

Ryan created this piece during YMP’s and SFAI’s 4th Annual Summer Intensive. Enjoy this heartfelt and inspirational story!

Words

“My piece is merely a collection of poems I wrote. I made them as personal as possible.”

What Ari Rappaport said about his YMP/SFAI Summer Intensive piece is quite the understatement.  While it is a collection of poetry, there is nothing ‘mere’ about them. The philosophies Ari dives into are nothing short of extrodinary- through his poems he creates worlds of wonder about the most fundamental ideas of how to live.

Enjoy the poetic philosophies of Ari Rappaport!

Why Can’t We

Katherine MacDonald, from the New Mexico School For The Arts, wrote and recorded her song, “Why Can’t We,” during Youth Media Project’s summer intensive at the Santa Fe Arts Institute.  In this catchy and melodic song, Katherine plays piano and sings and her lyrics bring up multiple questions about peace, harmony and social justice… so, why can’t we have these things?

What If

In this piece, Ellie Evans, a student from the New Mexico School For The Arts, asks the question: What if?  What if the world were different?  This imaginative and poetic piece challenges our current understanding of the world around us. Her simple yet beautiful questions pull the rug out from underneath listeners- what if old is young… or what if we all understood basic human rights?
