GenNow Fest Honduras!
On May 4th, over 5,000 young people from Central America came together for the Fourth Annual Generation Now Festival in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Glasswing and Televicentro, in partnership with Istmo Music, planned the event to celebrate and empower youth throughout the region by creating a safe space where they were able to enjoy performances by Colombian artists Mike Bahía, Alkilados, and other artists from the region, as well as learn how they could get involved and become agents of change in their communities.
Under the slogan “Yo Me Atrevo”, GenNowFest kicked off with a regional youth forum where the crowd was addressed by motivational speaker and extreme sports professional Javier Zapata and later invited to participate in a music workshop led by Salvadoran artists Shaka y Dres. GenNowFest continues to be an opportunity to recognize local heroes from different communities around Central America where youth is mobilized to bring positive attention to the region and promote their involvement in society through a regional network of young leaders.
