Free Summer Workshops via The Future Perfect Project!

Three years ago the co-founder of the Trevor Project, James Lecesne started an arts initiative called THE FUTURE PERFECT PROJECT. Along with a small team of teaching artists, they traveled the country offering true storytelling and songwriting workshops to LGBTQ+ Youth and allies. In March when it became clear that they could no longer travel, they launched The Future Perfect Online Workshop (FPOW) which has been super successful with queer and allied youth around the country.  THIS SUMMER, they are expanding their programs to include on-going and one-time workshops on specific topics such as filmmaking, songwriting, photography and drag and facilitated by professional artists.
And the good news is –  WORKSHOPS ARE TOTALLY FREE!
