Youth Music and Arts Festival

Youth Music and Art

The 2023 Youth Music and Arts Festival premieres August 15, 2023, on various Church digital channels. The pre-recorded broadcast may be used at any time to supplement local activities for youth.

This virtual, 24-hour global music and arts celebration is based on the 2023 Youth Theme “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” (Philippians 4:13). The celebration features youth and creative works by youth from around the world expressing how Jesus Christ is their source of strength in all they do.

“We can’t wait to see how you celebrate the festival in your area,” said a social media post from Young Women Worldwide, the official social media account of the Young Women organization.

Viewers can take pictures of their celebrations and tag the Young Women account or Strive to Be on Instagram, or use the hashtag #AllThingsThroughChrist.

The Church broadcast of the concert will show four times during a 24-hour period. All UTC times listed here are for August 15.

  • 5:00 AM UTC (11:00 PM MDT August 14)
  • 10:55 AM UTC (4:55 AM MDT August 15)
  • 5:00 PM UTC (11:00 AM MDT August 15)
  • 10:55 PM UTC (4:55 PM MDT August 15)

At any other point while tuning in that day, viewers can see the youth-submitted creative works.

Beginning Tuesday, August 15, watch the pre-recorded event on YouTube.com/StrivetoBe and Broadcasts.ChurchofJesusChrist.org. After August 15, the concert will be available to view on the Strive To Be YouTube channel. Those who miss the broadcast can later view many of the youth-submitted pieces on the Gospel Living app, Gospel Library app or Gospel Media.

The event will be available in Cantonese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish on ChurchofJesusChrist.org, the Gospel Library app, Gospel Media, and the Strive to Be YouTube channel.

The broadcast can be used by leaders, parents and youth at any time to supplement their local activities — youth can watch this as part of their weeknight activities if they choose or in other ways that work for them.
