Engaging the Next Generation is focused around giving students the influence to pursue careers within creative fields. With the help from well known professionals, students will be able to listen in on what made them strive to work towards a profession that they love.  

Alongside the conversation is a student art gallery organized by the Columbus North Art Department and Nomad Art.   

This event is organized by Council for Youth Development in collaboration with our partner, Exhibit Columbus.
