In the weeks leading up to the gala, participating “creators” (or artists) will be provided a residency where they will create artworks that they will deliver during the gala to City Year champions and art enthusiasts! At a series of “creation stations,” guests will take part in arts and culture experiences ranging from ﬁlm-making and photography to song writing, stencil art and screen printing.
