Tools for a stronger creative community
Equip the kids with the tools they need to build a more equitable, exciting, and powerful creative community for us all. In partnership with dozens of community partners and the City of Seattle, The Vera Project is making sure that young artists and production workers have access to all of the training, gear, and support they need to create their art and lead our creative economy. From in-depth audio and video production training to paid work in live-streaming and arts performance, we’re providing a launching board into creative industries for underserved youth in King County.
