What are you doing that’s creative this summer?

This summer, we invite youth, ages 9 to 18, to Imagine Our Story

Create a recording, video, painting, drawing, or photo. Write a story, poem, or hybrid work. Doesn’t matter the medium, what matters is telling the world your story. Submit your Stories and join in any of the workshops, groups, or events!

How you can join in

Create an audio, video, writing, or art ‘Story’ for yourself, look at what others have submitted and then submit your work. The library may feature your work here on the website and on our YouTube and Flickr pages. Also, we are on Instagram at pimalibrary.arts.

Your choice of ‘Stories’ is as wide as your imagination. Create visual art or photographs, write a short story or poetry, write a story about yourself, make music, interview a friend or family member about an experience, or film a book trailer or other video project. 


To inspire you and help you create, we have scheduled online workshops for middle and high school-age youth.


Visit Stories and Art for all the details -- how to submit, tips for making your story, online workshops, and a gallery of submissions by people just like you.


If you have any questions or want to share your idea and get feedback on how best to create your Story, email storysketches@pima.gov with ‘Story Idea’ in the subject line.
