AGO Live: UforChange

Join AGO Assistant Curator, Sarah Febbraro and UforChange for a conversation and live performance on Friday, November 20, 2020. This program is part of the partner series, AGO Live: Hello From The Other Side where we welcome partners from across the city to use the AGO as a site for their programs in an effort to revitalize the arts in our city.

In the uncertain time of COVID, where gatherings and performing arts are taking the biggest hit, how have you spent lockdown? Music may have played a large part of it. Did you hone your DJ skills or did you entrust your sonic landscape to others? Every DJ needs a place to start, and the ones our colleagues at AGO Youth platform are no different. Tune in for a conversation about how UforChange facilitates creative DJ workshops by hearing from two of their artists.

An introduction will be given by Bojana Stancic, AGO Assistant Curator of Live Projects & Performances.

UforChange gives young people an opportunity to nurture their creative passions in a series of hands-on arts workshops led by a team of talented arts mentors. There's photographers, fashion designers and DJs—all professionals in their field with real-world experience, ready to share their insights and passions.
