Several years ago, the National YoungArts Foundation began exploring ways to expand its reach and increase its impact across the country. The result was the launch of regional programs, which extends recognition and resources to hundreds of additional YoungArts winners each year. Modeled on the transformative experience of its annual signature program, National YoungArts Week, regional programs—which are currently offered in Miami, New York and Los Angeles—expose audiences to emerging artists from the community and allow participants to take master classes with world-renowned artists and showcase their work through performances, exhibitions, and readings at some of the most prestigious arts institutions in the country.
Regional programs are produced in close partnership with institutions in each region, such as Baryshnikov Art Center
and New World Center
(Miami) and Los Angeles Theatre Center
