First Generation

t e n d e r n e s s  originated from within the First Generation community and developed over a two-year creative process.

First Generation is an arts and youth leadership program based in Springfield, MA that brings together young adults ages 15-23 who identify as "first generation,” for intensive artistic training, leadership development, and inter-generational mentoring. Forming an artistic ensemble, we create original multi-lingual performances based on their discoveries.
