Summer Kickoff


At the end of every school year Totem Star hosts the Summer Kickoff youth arts showcase to highlight select artists who have performed at our House Party open mics in the winter and spring. Soulchild Elle, who was featured in the recent video documentary by The Seattle Times, will perform her new original song, a fresh and summery love song with a classic R&B vibe. West Seattle High School freshman Jawzilla will team up with backing band Noah and the Arks to rock a brand new song they’ve been working on during their after school sessions. All the way from Lynnwood, singer/songwriter Amy Hall will capture your soul with her voice – we just met her at the last House Party and she’s awesome! Stay tuned for more artist announcements!

This year’s event goes down on Friday June 10 from 6-9pm at Youngstown Cultural Arts Centerand will feature an amazing dinner by Food & Sh*t and Sam Choy’s Poke To The Max. As always, the event is all ages and is free to the general public thanks to partnerships with 4Culture, Arts Corps, the Delridge Neighborhood Development Association, the Jubilation Foundation, the Office of Arts & Culture, and the Satterberg Foundation.
