YAX partners with Root Division to create annual youth-led arts exhibits in visual, performing, and technical arts. In 2016 we partnered with Root Division to host our Spring Session Final Event, New Growth: Celebrating our Community, which featured visual arts and architecture exhibitions, performances, live printing, and interactive workshops. This partnership allows young artists from both organizations to work together to host the event and showcase their work across disciplines. Additionally, Root Division is one of our long-standing participating organizations of the Youth Arts Summit, YAX’s signature event that takes place every year in December, bringing together young artists from 20 youth arts organizations under one roof. In the upcoming year, YAX and Root Division will continue to work together to produce joint exhibitions and continue to build the reach of the Summit.

Youth Art Exchange is proud to partner with arts organizations from across San Francisco and believes that our programming and ability to lift up the work of our youth is made stronger through collaborations. We’ll be highlighting some of these partnerships each week – stay tuned!
