The original showcase of rising talent, produced by Savoir Agency, is the start of a movement designed to inspire parents, help children find their creative voice, and combat the under-funding of the Arts in schools.
“We are thrilled that the response to first our event “Future Disruptors,” was so positive,” said event producers Marta Stattmiller and Tamalin Srisook. “Overall, the day drew in great array of rising stars that showcased some incredible performances.”
“Partnering with Savoir was an extraordinary experience,” said Co-Founder and Executive Director, Wendy Winks. “Our inaugural event further illustrates the interest by our youth of the arts in all forms. We will continue to support these efforts by having a second event later this year.”
