TRANSIT ARTS, young artists on the move, transports young people to a place of discovery – where creative abilities expand & doors open to a world of possibilities.
TRANSIT ARTS is a citywide youth arts development program of Central Community House and the Columbus Federation of Settlements and works in partnership with the Ohio Alliance for Arts Education. TRANSIT ARTS is rooted in a rich history of community engagement and enlists young artists, ages 12-21, in intensive programs of coaching by outstanding artists and other professionals from the creative industries.
The TRANSIT ARTS Performance Group is a dynamic blend of outstanding professional artists and talented youth artists inspiring and challenging one another to honor our roots while creating fresh new work. Rhythms rise from turntables, microphones, and dancing feet, as poets, hip-hop emcees, breakdancers, DJs, beatboxers, and visual artists flow together to create a breathtaking, and interactive, multi-disciplinary performance experience.
