Coming Soon! Listen to Your Art: August 6 in Port Gamble

July 26, 2016
By Espen Swanson

Listen to Your Art - August 6, 12 noon to 9 p.m. in Port GambleA certain group of WSA students and recent graduates haven't been taking it easy this summer.  They have been hard at work completing preparations and planning for the Listen to Your Art festival, taking place on August 6, from 12 noon to 9 p.m. at the baseball field in Port Gamble.

The goal for this entirely student-run music and art festival is to raise money and awareness for the Trevor Project, the country's leading crisis intervention and suicide prevention service for youth, with specific assistance for LGBTQ teens.

Listen to Your Art was orignally created and continues to be managed by WSA students.  Last year's event succeeded in raising $6,000 for the Trevor Project. This year the Listen to Your Art team hopes to continue their success, and they have partnered with local bands, artists, and businesses to create a fun day and a meaningful donation to the Trevor Project.
