Our mission at Young Audiences New York (YANY) is to inspire young people and expand learning through the arts. Founded in 1952, we are part of the nation’s oldest and largest arts in education network, Young Audiences for Arts and Learning.
At YANY we want students to engage, explore, imagine and create. We provide innovative, interactive opportunities to students in the visual arts, music, dance, theater, and digital art. Our longstanding partnerships with schools and the communities they serve have transformed young people’s lives with programs that educate, inspire and empower.
ART CREATES OPPORTUNITY
Together We Make a Difference
YANY seeks to engage children in a 5 step art making process: Planning, Creating, Producing, Presenting and Reflecting. We believe creating art is deeply connected to expanding social networks, increasing self awareness and developing the life skills critical for success in school, work and life.
Young Audiences New York engages young people by fostering creativity, self-expression and cultural understanding through innovative arts learning experiences. We seek to inspire, engage, educate and transform our city’s youth through the arts by connecting educators, professional artists and the communities they serve.
YANY is committed to advancing Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Belonging and Access.
