Carnival is a time of celebration. For the past six years, the Carnival Arts program has helped teens living in youth crisis shelters across Florida celebrate life. The teens learn drum and dance traditions from West Africa and Venice to Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Jamaica, and Trinidad to Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru. They make masks and costumes that hide their identities, and reveal how they feel about themselves and their world.
