Amazing evening at UforChange at its Vivacity One showcase on Monday as the arts-based youth training and employment project launched a week-long celebration for its second cohort of graduates. Students were at the National Ballet School’s Currie Hall to showcase video, spoken word, improv, photography, website design and other great skills that they have honed in recent weeks. UforChange’s graduate week continues Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings with a variety of plays, performance, spoken word and video. The Wellesley Institute is a founding partner and trustee for UforChange.
