Project Leader: London Hosier

Hello! My name is London Hosier. I use She/Her pronouns and this is my first Juvenis Festival! I love all arts but my main two are dance and visual art. I moved to Kingston 3 years ago from Fort Worth Texas and very much love it here and am excited to be involved with the arts locally. I am an avid Taylor Swift, Marvel fan and lover of books. My project this year is a 12x12 art show named ‘Mixed Media’ and I am very excited to be participating in the 2022 Juvenis Festival this spring.
