Aspiring artists will have the opportunity to meet productive local artists and to educate themselves on today's possibilities as creators in society.

WHY: Young people in Baltimore's neglected communities ARE living the most powerful and productive period of their lives and are in need of a venue for a voice. We aim to strengthen the relationship between developing artists and established artists through a day of informal mentor ship and networking. Through the alliance of several grassroots organizations, we plan to act in support of community pride and empowerment.
United Sisters has partnered with Steady Baltimore to establish an urban arts and youth mentoring center in the Greenmount community. The attaining of the necessary funding and volunteer base will be an ongoing objective, and this will serve as an awareness-of-the-cause event and fundraiser
