The Journal to Journey program, now in its 15th year, is a pre-professional youth development theater program presented by Urban Word NYC & Hi-ARTS NYC and led by a director and writing mentor. Young artists participate in a five-month process to write, stage, perform and present their own one-person show at two professional theaters, Hi-ARTS and New York Live Arts. The aim of this competitive program is to offer substantial, holistic support and creative experiences that bridge spoken word, hip-hop theatre and physical theatre in the development of an original ensemble show. By linking youth poets with professional theater artists we increase opportunities for achieving life goals, learning new skills, and collaborating creatively with other artists.
