Youth Art Workshop Details
RESCHEDULED TO SUNDAY, FEB. 23RD AT THE ST. PETERSBURG SHUFFLEBOARD COURTS AT NOON.
Calling all LGBTQ+ artists who are 18 and under in the Tampa Bay area!
We invite you to participate in the Equality Florida LGBTQ+ Youth Art Workshop on Sunday, Feb. 23rd from Noon to 3pm at the St. Petersburg Shuffleboard Courts at 559 Mirror Lake Dr N, Saint Petersburg.
The event is free but space is limited. We encourage you to sign up ASAP to secure your spot.
At the workshop, you'll create a mixed media collage piece to be featured in the upcoming LGBTQ+ Youth Art Show. The workshop will be led by John Gascot, founder of Diversity Arts (
). Diversity Arts aims to serve disenfranchised youth and groups by providing safe environments, guidance and materials for creative self-discovery, expression and sociocultural interaction.
In the wake of the mass shooting at Orlando’s Pulse nightclub on June 12, 2016, Equality Florida committed to honor the victims with action. Our Safe and Healthy Schools Program is aimed to end LGBTQ bias where it begins, in our schools. By helping our schools and educators create safe spaces for LGBTQ youth, students feel welcomed, supported and can thrive.
Equality Florida wants to create a platform to showcase and celebrate young LGBTQ+ artists. We want them to feel safe to express who they are through their art and in their life. That is why we have selected “Safe” as the theme for our first LGBTQ+ youth art show.

Thank You to Our Sponsors: Diversity Arts, Florida CraftArt, Gobioff Foundation, Mainframe Real Estate and The St. Petersburg Celebration for the Arts.
