March 27th to April 1st isThe National Young Audiences Arts for Learning Week (YA Week), an annual week-long advocacy event. During YA Week, the YA network focuses its combined efforts to raise awareness for arts-in-education around the country. It will be celebrated by the entire network of 30 Young Audiences affiliates in 22 states with arts integrated programming and special events in schools and community venues.
In honor of YA Week, Young Audiences New York will host their second annual forum - Children's Creativity: What's The Big Whoop?. Guest expert Shirley Brice Heath will increase our understanding of what children learn through art-making and how their creativity can impact whole neighborhoods. Shirley is a linguistic anthropologist who currently teaches at Stanford University and is also a guest lecturer at King's College at the University of London. She will be joined in dynamic discussion by Sarah Calderon, Managing Director of ArtPlace America and Beverly Ellis, retired New York City School Principal.
Young Audiences New York welcomes our friends from corporations, education, youth development, community organizations and the arts to join us as we mine insights for action in the year ahead. Registration for this event is free. Register Now.
