Open Hours: YAAAS!: Towson University x Refugee Youth Project

January 20 · 2:00pm – 4:00pm
Free; no reservation required. Drop-in anytime during the event.

Youth Artists and Allies taking Action in Society—YAAAS!—is a new arts-based community engagement project that partners Towson University graduate students with refugee youth attending Patterson High School in southeast Baltimore. Together they explore how the arts can be a powerful vehicle for supporting refugee youth in learning English, forming relationships across differences, expressing themselves, and finding their own sense of agency, while they build their new home. Join them for a creative presentation to learn about their eight-week artistic exploration.

This event is FREE and open to the public. For more information, or to propose a program for Open Hours, please contact Dave Eassa at
