2022 National YoungArts Week+
January 29-February 4, 2022
To continue supporting artists through the pandemic, the 2022 National YoungArts Week program took place online, and finalists across 10 disciplines participated in virtual classes and interdisciplinary workshops with internationally recognized leaders in their field, including Miami City Ballet Principal Dancer Patricia Delgado, acclaimed jazz drummer Ignacio Berroa, photographer and curator Antwaun Sargent, Broadway and television actor Daniel Watts*, visual artist Jean Shin* and poet Lemon Andersen. Finalists were eligible for financial awards of up to $10,000, as well as for nomination as U.S. Presidential Scholars in the Arts.
Following the week-long intensive, audiences were invited to meet the most accomplished young artists during six nights of free virtual performances, writers’ readings and an exhibition, and through a digital Anthology + Catalogue.
