What We Want for Children
Young Audiences New York wants all children in our city to experience extraordinary art—both as creators and as audience members.
We believe that no matter what kind of work today’s children will go on to do as tomorrow’s grown-ups, they will need to know how to persevere, collaborate, solve problems creatively and assess their own progress.
What better way for children to learn all these important 21st Century learning and life skills—and experience joy too—than through arts in education!
“The beaming smiles on our students’ faces shows me just how receptive they were to each artist, and for that I am so grateful. Many of our kids lead very underexposed lives and I hope this experience is the catalyst for more imaginative thought and willingness to explore new activities.”
