Network Initiatives

This summer, Young Audiences of Abilene welcomed Talan Cobb as its new Executive Director. Operating as part of the Abilene Cultural Affairs Council (ACAC), Young Audiences of Abilene brings together schools, communities, and professional teaching artists, creating programs that help make the arts an integral part of education for students in the community. We spoke with Talan about her
Young Audiences has signed on in support of a 15-action national recovery strategy that the next Administration can use to put creative workers to work—activating the creative economy and drawing upon the creative energies of the country’s 5.1 million creative workers to energize Americans, reimagine how communities can thrive, and improve the lives of all.
We are excited to join forces with the Young Audiences Arts for Learning Network and the field-at-large to celebrate National Arts in Education Week, September 13-19, 2020!
Young Audiences of Maryland's Summer Arts & Learning Academy has been recognized by the National Summer Learning Association (NSLA) with its Excellence in Summer Learning Award, one of only three programs, culled from nearly 350 applicants, to earn the prestigious recognition for 2020.
