5 to 10 on Hennepin
5 to 10 on Hennepin, now in its seventh year, is a community focused, youth-based summer entertainment program and empowerment platform. Over the years, this cornerstone program at Hennepin Theatre Trust has received local and national awards for its community engagement and youth leadership focus, by creating unique and engaging art and cultural experiences in the Hennepin Theatre District, while also providing outreach and support services at the events, which ensure the health and safety of our diverse and everchanging community. This summer initiative is produced in partnership with Kulture Klub Collaborative, Streetworks and our many other supporting organizations and donors in the community.
This year, the Trust is excited to take 5 to 10 on Hennepin in a new direction by elevating Kulture Klub Collective and their youth participants into a leadership role. This exciting new format provides more opportunities for youth to excel and participate in creating community engagement.
Events for 5 to 10 on Hennepin will take place in the alley at FAIR School from 1-3 p.m., starting Thursday June 9, and running bi-weekly through Thursday, August 11. Each of the six events will feature unique and diverse entertainment programmed by the youth participants and interns. We hope you will join us for this exciting new phase of 5 to 10 on Hennepin, and in celebrating the youth and organizations which make it possible!
