Listen to Your Art Year Two will take place on August 6th in Port Gamble from 12-9pm. The event will showcase eight local bands along with a showing from a variety of local artists and restaurants.

Listen to Your Art was founded in 2015 by Ben Taylor, Megan Hall, and Aidan Moore as a way to raise money and awareness for the Trevor Project. The Trevor Project is the nation’s leading organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ teens and young adults.Listen to Your Art, August 22, 2015 - Espen Swanson photo

Listen to Your Art has and will continue to be completely student-run and organized. Each member of the team is committed to eliminating the taboo that is associated with the topic of suicide. The purpose of Listen to Your Art is to foster the creation of a safe and open community that is willing to discuss and overcome the issue through a day of creative education and interaction.
