Since 2012, MOMENTUM has been dedicated to creating a platform for youth artists to share their art with their peers and the community. Formerly known as Yam Jam, the annual festival has evolved to become a celebration of creative energy which is now envisioned and driven entirely by youth.
Presented by the Arts Council of New Westminster and produced by Massey Theatre, MOMENTUM Youth Arts Festival is programmed, organized and driven by youth. The Momentum Youth Panel consists of seven youth from New Westminster steering the arts programming for the festival. The key community partners supporting the youth’s efforts are: Arts Council of New Westminster, Massey Theatre, NWSS Fine Arts Department, City of New Westminster, and SD 40 Community Schools.
