OPEN CALL FOR
THE LAST GROVE

The Future Perfect Project & Atlantic For Kids are seeking NYC-based LGBTQIA+ youth writer-performers ages 16-21 for a 10-day devised theatre workshop in

New York City, June 15–22.

A close up of a hand of a person with pale skin lays across a fuzzy, bumpy red cloth diagonally, emerging from the bottom left corner and leading to the upper right corner. The hand is open, and a rainbow streak fills the span of their palm, with the color red at the top, and purple at the bottom.  In the center of their palm is a black outlined heart.

OUR
MISSION

The Future Perfect Project believes that the artistic expression of young people is a declaration of a better future for us all. By making safe spaces for LGBTQ+ Youth & Allies to express themselves through the arts, connect with one another, and amplify their voices, FPP is creating a future where every young person feels safe, seen, and celebrated in their home and community.

WHAT
WE OFFER

We offer both in-person and online workshops for youth ages 13-22. The Future Perfect Online Workshops (FPOW) are a weekly lineup of programming designed to help Queer & Allied Young People express their innermost truth through visual art, writing, and performance.

‘Fpow!’is  in blue uppercase writing, centered in the image on a white splatter shape which is outlined in black. The splatter has black lines coming from it and a circle of pink dots behind it. This takes up the middle third of the image, and pictures are collaged around this behind a translucent heart. The folks in the images make a heart shape with their arms meeting from their images  pasted together.   At the bottom of the picture, outside of the heart, is a person with a lighter pale skin tone, with dark short hair and light eyes, making a heart with their hands at the bottom of their picture. On the bottom left, is a photo of a person with a lighter pale skin tone who has short light brown hair positioned to the right, making a heart shape with their hands to their left.

“I started out quarantine…and I wouldn’t even share my songs with my sister or my best friend. I started doing this workshop…and it’s made me so much more comfortable in my vulnerability. I owe a lot to all of you at FPP. You have changed my life so much, and I’m just so insanely grateful...” 

Logan, Minnesota

“A lot of these workshops have helped me, not "get over,” but face a lot of trauma I have, and helped me cope with it. And I’ve met a lot of people who if I talked to a little bit more I would consider friends…and family!”

"FPP has done so much for me, especially since COVID-19 hit. I’ve made friends on the other side of the country and gained a sense of community that I hadn’t had before. It has helped me grow as an artist and a person, and has provided me a safe space to feel my feelings as queerly as I want."

Levi, Philadelphia

“I had never considered myself a writer. I was really good at it in grade school/middle school…and then I just kinda of dropped it…Future Perfect brought it back like a storm…I didn’t think it was my thing, and then Future Perfect made it my thing. I can’t imagine my life without Future Perfect”

WHAT OUR PARTNERS SAY

“The work that The Future Perfect Project does with LGBTQ+ young people is amazing. Within 45 minutes the youth had written lyrics about their own life experiences and collaborated to weave the lyrics together into song. Ryan and Celeste’s caring spirit and great facilitation skills allow so much creativity to flow around tough, personal topics.”
