Join us for the culmination of the 2017 Mission Voices Summer program! In Touch Δ Tell, the youth artists of Mission Voices Summer create a home for themselves and their art somewhere between material and language. Through personal, tactile, and conceptual interactions with diverse materials, these artists investigate issues and concerns central to their lives and create objects and narratives informed by these investigations.

Southern Exposure's Mission Voices Summer (MVS) is a FREE four-week intensive summer arts program for youth aged 14-21. Young artists learn to use the visual arts as a tool for expressing ideas, ambitions, and creativity. In MVS, youth artists spend the summer working with 30 other Bay Area youth and six professional artists to develop an art exhibition in SoEx's large Mission-district gallery.
