This is a monthly series of talks from local professionals who pursued their passions and found a career in a creative, artistic, or unconventional field. Planning for the future can be daunting and with these talks we hope to inspire adolescents, teens, and young adults to start thinking about a path that's right for them and start working toward their goals. Each talk will be followed by a hands-on activity led by the speaker and library staff.

This month's guest is Joshua "Text" Perkins, co-founder of the BBOY FEDERATION, a non-profit organization that showcases urban dance as a viable path to success through practice, performance and education.

The focus of the BBOY FEDERATION is to help grow the Hip Hop community in Utah while providing local youth with an opportunity to develop their skills. By providing a forum to unite dancers and their families in passion for their art, participants in the BBOY FEDERATION are inspired to succeed not only on the dance floor, but in life itself.

This program is held in partnership with Framework Arts.
