YoungArts offers new and expanded opportunities for award winners to create, develop and present their work, and to connect with audiences through a variety of initiatives.
YoungArts Residency programs foster creative growth for projects in early stage development by providing artists with financial support or dedicated time and space, either on the YoungArts campus or in their home cities through strategic partnerships. In response to the ongoing uncertainty of the pandemic, YoungArts has activated and expanded its national network of cultural partnerships in an effort to serve artists where they live while simultaneously supporting the larger cultural ecology.
Through a series of interdisciplinary sessions, classes and conversations, YoungArts award winners will have the opportunity to collaborate with their peers from other disciplines, be exposed to new techniques and principles, and learn about tools and concepts that are essential to deepening and growing their creative process. We offer award winners ongoing virtual interdisciplinary classes with renowned artists including Ohad Naharin, Rosie Herrera, Germane Barnes, Marika Hughes and Lemon Anderson.
YoungArts exhibitions feature work by artists across generations, created in a range of mediums and often at different stages in their careers. Curated around the most urgent and relevant themes of our time, exhibitions are organized by respected curators and artists in the field.
Your relationship with YoungArts begins as a high school student, but it doesn’t end there. They continually reinvest in their alumni through programs that have had an impact on my career.”
