Our
Mission is

Creating opportunities that help young people develop their talents. We work so that children and young people have access to knowledge and other cultures, thus broadening their horizons and generating new projects in their lives. We also seek to offer a cultural alternative for the Midtown community and position ourselves as a cultural reference in Milwaukee.

Community center

Our efforts are aimed at establishing a cultural center that supports the artistic development of Milwaukee's children and youth. With the support of the community, we are expanding our space so that more and more children and youth have the opportunity to access all artistic expressions. Our goal is to be able to establish our Community Center so that youth and children in the Milwaukee Midtown area have access to and practice in all areas of the arts.

Open-air gallery 

Our outdoor gallery aims to support equity in access to art in the city and provide an open space for visual artists who wish to carry out their exhibition projects for the community. In addition to being an artistic and touristic reference in the city of Milwaukee that benefits the Midtown community.

we are

Talented young people INC

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created in 2019 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and since 2008 in Bogotá-Colombia to develop projects that contribute to the construction of a better society through art. Our organization is made up of academics, teachers, community members and volunteers with the common goal of providing unique learning experiences, generating opportunities that would otherwise be out of reach. We seek to help connect academics, artists and scholars to bring their knowledge to the youth and children of the community to support their future life plans.

Our programs

Schools
GK, K, 1-8 grades

We offer art programs in schools, designing each program with the specific needs of each school and the objectives they want to achieve together with our artists.

Community - families, Neighborhood, events

We offer workshops and training for the integration and enjoyment of families and their territory, with the participation of special guests in the field of art and culture.

Residencies residencies

Within the framework of the intercultural exchange that Jóvenes con Talento INC promotes; every year we open the doors of our workshop house in Milwaukee to all those international artists in the areas of visual arts, music, theater and literature who want to share their proposals and experiences with the Milwaukee community in order to enrich their careers and expand the cultural offerings of the city and the Midtown area.

Classes after school

Our workshops also focus on offering alternatives for the good use of free time for girls, boys and young people through art, science and sports. After the school day, students have the opportunity to immerse themselves in creation with local artists who guide them in developing skills in the arts. The artists engage students as young as 8 years old in artistic exploration activities.

Cultural exchange
Spanish and other languages

One of the main barriers to the integration of different cultures is language. Our goal is to bring the community closer to different cultures through art and foreign languages. In order to support the integration of cultures in the city of Milwaukee, we develop intercultural encounters in the community for the exchange of languages in a practical and playful way through experiential experiences with specialists in the fields of visual arts, theater, dance and live music from different parts of the world.
