Metta Young Artists

The Metta Young Artists are a constantly expanding group of creative, passionate, and curious young artists of all types within our community that participate in, create, and co-create the multiple productions of the Metta Young Artists Production Program.

This program provides young artists (actors, musicians, painters, photographers, dancers, poets, film makers, writers, etc) from our community the tools to turn their original ideas into real life productions that are then shared with the community all whilst being welcomed into the supportive, loving, and safe Metta Theatre family. 

Individual and collective empowerment, freedom of creative expression, and compassion is what Metta Young Artists programs are about.
