Vera NASH Youth Streaming Project

As part of our leadership work with NW Arts Streaming Hub and forwarding our value of LEARNING we partnered with VERA and served on their advisory board helping in the design and implementation of the programming.

This program is a partnership between VERA and NASH with two primary components: 
(1) a 12-member youth cohort who will receive up to 20 trainings that build their skills in live-streaming, video/audio production, editing/design, and business. Youth to receive one-on-one support, payment for the creation of 2 content pieces, and a $500 mini-grant to purchase some of their own equipment. 
(2) a 4-5 member curatorial fellowship that will give advanced students the chance to curate 8 episodes of “NASH at Nite” a variety show featuring local artists. Youth will receive a stipend of $600 per episode curated, and featured artists will receive a stipend for the use of their content in the variety show.
