A Celebration

It’s a celebration of transformation! Each year, hundreds of Express Yourself youth experience the joy and satisfaction of being publicly celebrated for their unique contribution to this remarkable performance.

3rdGrader_quoteFor all of the young people involved, the Express Yourself Milwaukee show reflects of a year of artistic exploration and self-discovery. Every aspect of the show — the set, the music, the dancing, the videos, the spoken words — is the result of hundreds of individual contributions from youth working in the studio, in the community, and in treatment facilities.

Being celebrated for their successes is often something new for these youth; and for the adults in their lives, the performance offers a way to see their child as an important part of an exceptional event. The Express Yourself annual show is proof that art changes lives, strengthens families, and builds community.

The show is free and open to the public — join us, and see for yourself the transformation that takes place when young people discover positive ways to express themselves.
