YAS! Fest features special musical guests and centers youth talent

By FSM Communications

I feel like Chicago has a lot of talent that is unmatched by anyone in the industry and festivals and platforms like this really give us a stage and platform to network with people and show people who we are.
— On YAS! FEst

On a vibrant September Saturday, Free Spirit Media participated in YAS! Fest, an art showcase in Millennium Park and held by Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) and Chicago Youth Voices Network. This was a fantastic opportunity for Free Spirit Media to show off their journalism and videography skills in the same park as artists like Ravyn Lenae, Desiigner as well as hundreds of other Chicago young adults! The result? YAS! Fest was covered by Free Spirit Media participants and staff: Delilah Armenta (reporter, FSM News West), Ebony Ellis (reporter, The Real Chi), Ana Lopez (videographer, FSM News West), Jamarian Gant (videographer, FSM News West), Briana Shields, and Joshua Jackson!
