2023 National YoungArts Week
From January 8-15, 2023, YoungArts competition finalists convened in Miami to collaborate with peers across 10 disciplines and develop their craft with internationally recognized leaders in their field during National YoungArts Week.
138 YoungArts finalists presented their work to the public over the course of five nights of performances, writers’ readings and an exhibition, and learned from notable artists such as author Richard Blanco, actor and playwright Taylor Mac, jazz alto saxophonist Charles McPherson, costume designer Machine Dazzle and actor BD Wong, who led the annual AON masterclass.
