The 14 year-old YOUTH DAY Arts Festival is adapting to a digital Worldwide stage with its unique “YD FestCast” this Summer.
Young aspiring dancers up to the age of 29 can submit an audition video here:
“Our Youth deserve something to look forward to; to be encouraged to practice their passion; and to share their achievements with the whole World to applaud. It behooves us all to show them that indeed, ‘where there’s a will, there’s a way’ – and using today’s technology, is our answer to the current virus and self-isolation. Our next generation will not miss their moment to shine!” says Tylaine Duggan, Youth Day Founder and Executive Producer.
ABOUT YOUTH DAY
YOUTH DAY, now in its 14th year was created after the 2005 “Summer of the Gun” in Toronto to engage youth, help build their self-esteem, and provide them a platform to showcase their passion in the Arts. The free family Festival attracts some 40,000 visitors each July, and is operated 100% by dedicated Volunteers.
The Yonge-Dundas Square stage in downtown Toronto has been the home of YD for the past 10 years, and a unique Yonge Street closure adjacent, accommodates its popular YD Market with Food and Artisan Vendors, plus Community Organizations exhibiting. The Festival does not depend on Government Grants, and is enabled solely by Corporate Brands.
In view of the recent imposed closure of public venues and gatherings, Youth Day is adding a unique FestCast to ensure the Artists’ hard work and efforts over the year are now further seen around the World. The 12-hour event will still be happening from recorded performances in isolation, and compiled into the BIG DAY reel!
Regular Festival updates and the Summer’s FestCast will be posted on at www.youthdayglobal.com.
