NEA Arts Magazine: SAY Confident Voices Takes Center Stage

The NEA Profiles SAY's Confident Voices Program

Perhaps SAY’s most innovative initiative, though, is Confident Voices, an after-school and weekend program rooted in theater and actively supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, as well as by arts figures like actor Paul Rudd and singer and songwriter Carly Simon. Through Confident Voices, participants collaborate with instructors and mentors, including Academy and Tony Award-winning professionals, to create and present original works. Any given Confident Voices show could see students performing onstage alongside noted theater and screen actors. Or those same professional actors might bring to life the writing, direction, lighting design, and other creative visions of their young SAY colleagues.
