We believe strongly in the power of the arts to lift and empower communities, especially during uncertain times such as these.
Our mission is to make the arts a part of young people’s lives in order to enhance their development as creative and productive human beings. While schools are not open for us to advance our mission in the typical way, we know children, families, and educators could benefit from our support. We remain committed to being mission-oriented every single day—even if it has to be online and virtual.
Young Audiences’ Arts Connection
Arts Connection is our opportunity to share the work of our extraordinary Teaching Artists in action so you, your friends, and family can stay connected to and inspired by the arts this summer!
What You Can Do
Support Young Audiences
With many schools in Western New York closed until further notice, there will be significant financial implications not only on Young Audiences but also on our dedicated professional artists, partners, and families we serve – all who are also facing uncertainty during this time.
Please consider helping us through this difficult period by giving to Young Audiences today.
It’s because of you that we have been able to offer high quality arts-in-education programming and services for nearly 60 years.
As we pivot to meet the emerging needs of our community during this rapidly evolving time, we are deeply grateful for any amount you can contribute towards making the arts even more accessible in the digital realm – now, and for years to come.
