As an affiliate of Young Audiences Arts for Learning, we will join the nationwide, two-week YA Week celebration and advocacy initiative, which aims to raise awareness and support for arts-in-education.
First championed in 1971 by conductor Leonard Bernstein, YA Week has grown into a two-week, nationwide celebration of arts-in-education. Each spring, the YA Network joins forces to raise national and local awareness about arts-in-education initiatives through public performances, special events, and other programs. YA Week is a opportunity to showcase for the network’s Congressional stakeholders the great work being carried out in their districts. Individual supporters of YA and the arts are also encouraged celebrate YA Week by contacting local legislators regarding the importance of arts-in-education and showing support for the arts on social media with #YAweek.
