By hosting the Youth Arts Summit, we aim to bring together youth artists and youth arts programs throughout the Bay in a professional arts venue. As we strive to increase program engagement for our youth participants, we know that the visibility and legitimacy of being in this type of space can spark a lifelong connection to the arts and their own practice. Your support of our work and our flagship programs like the Youth Arts Summit allows us to extend our reach beyond our own walls and continue to build networks of young artists. Click here to give!
