Norris Square Neighborhood Project (NSNP) will be hosting Yo Soy Mi Sueño (I Am My Dream) Youth Art Showcase at the organization’s largest community garden Las Parcelas.

Video, silkscreen, performances, original music, and street art-style projects will be featured.  Youth-designed and created crafts under the instruction of artists Anne Harrison and Linda Fernandez for the Hecho EN creative placemaking project will be available for sale at the event.
