Musically Me Unlimited is an arts-based empowerment program for youth designed to build community and foster resilience.
This July, we are offering a FREE summer program centering the experiences of Black teen girls (13yo+) with an interest in: music, performing, songwriting, poetry, and/or singing, regardless of experience level.
Summer 2022 Details (10 sessions):
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday weekly
*Application deadline: Friday, June 17th*
Paul Lawrence Dunbar Lancaster Kiest Library

Dallas, TX 75216
Saturday, July 30th
Students are guided through experiential activities such as music making, songwriting, spoken word, discussions, and performance, learning how to use music as a tool for self-expression, self-care, and community building.
Blending the arts with social-emotional learning, students:
- Create songs
Participate in drum circles and musical jams
Receive mentorship on approaches to writing (songs, poems/creative writing set to music)
Explore music-based mindfulness and other forms of self-care through music
- Receive coaching on performance technique
- Engage in discussions
Musically Me Unlimited culminates with a final performance to showcase works created during the program.
The structure of the program lends itself to an increase in coping skills and tools to be resilient, providing a safe space for self-expression, and opportunities for increased self- esteem, self-care, creative expression, and problem solving through musical and socio-emotional exploration.
