National YoungArts Week

National YoungArts Week is an intensive program for award winners with distinction to collaborate with peers across 10 disciplines, develop their craft with internationally recognized leaders in their fields and create lifelong connections.

Artists participate in classes and interdisciplinary workshops with acclaimed artists and are eligible for financial awards of up to $10,000, as well as nomination as U.S. Presidential Scholars in the Arts.

During the week-long intensive, audiences are invited to meet the most accomplished young artists in five nights of performances, writers’ readings and an exhibition, and through the publication of the Anthology + Catalogue.

YoungArts’ mantra is that this experience will change your life. When I first saw this, I doubted that one week would have such an impact. Boy, was I wrong!
