Performing Life


Performing Life is a nonprofit organization incorporated in the State of New Mexico in 2005. The organization's mission is to create community and opportunity with youth who are working and/or living on the streets of Cochabamba, Bolivia. We empower youth by teaching them performing and visual arts as productive skills for avoiding drugs and delinquency while improving their economic well-being through creative activities. Founded in 2005 by John Connell when he was 18, Performing Life is youth-led and managed. Performing Life works with children and adolescents who work and/or live on the streets. Most are supporting themselves or contributing to the support of their families. Participants are from indigenous communities and outlying areas of the city. Most are native Quechua speakers.
