Future Blue Projects
During their term, FBYC members participate in individual and group initiatives that leverage their skills and passions to advance Bow Seat’s mission and programming, from creating publications and co-presenting at conferences to educating young people about creative advocacy and raising awareness of Bow Seat initiatives.
Future Blue Magazine
The Future Blue Magazine is a collection of student artwork curated by the 2022 Future Blue Youth Council. Within these pages, FBYC members share their favorite pieces from the 2021 Contest and discuss why they found them to be inspirational and memorable. A print version of the Magazine is distributed at in-person events and workshops to uplift student art and amplify youth voices.View the Future Blue Magazine
