AYV at the OCIC Global Citizens Forum

On November 7th - 8th, 2013 Adobe Youth Voices was given the opportunity to exhibit artwork at the Global Citizens Forum. This year the main focus of the Forum was on the “State of the World Youth”.

The Forum was kicked of by two keynote speakers, Jennifer Correro from TakingITGlobal and Rite Karakas from Canada World Youth. Both speeches were inspiring and insightful into the ways the Youth can create positive social change.

A lot of the discussions at the forum were based on education and using arts as a tool for learning and creating change. Adobe Youth Voices was a perfect representation of how youth can take an art form that they are passionate about and turn it into a educational and career building opportunity.

Overall the Global Citizens forum allowed key stakeholder in the International Development Community to view and appreciate the artwork created by youth around the world.
