Young Artists at Work
The YBCA Young Artists at Work (YAAW) program is a paid, year-long, multidisciplinary arts-as-activism residency for Bay Area high school youth at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. The YAAW program is designed for young people that are interested in expanding their artistic craft while connecting with local communities and the contemporary art world.
APPLY NOW for the 2013-14 YBCA YAAW Program!
From July 22nd through August 15th, 25 Bay Area high school youth spend their afternoons immersed in contemporary art and ideas at YBCA, learning from local and global artists who make project-based, social-justice-oriented work.
Then, the YAAWs spend the year (after school, on Tuesdays and Thursdays) designing and producing original community-based arts projects under the guidance of YBCA artist-mentors.
You could be one of these youth! But you’ve got to get your application in before the deadline: JUNE 10th at 5:00 pm!
If you are:
- …a critical thinker
- …a creative visionary
- …driven to make art that inspires change in the world around you
- …excited about collaborating with other young contemporary artists
- …ready to design and produce your own community-based arts project
- …interested in FREE access to YBCA gallery exhibitions, performances and films
- …and would like to be paid up to $225 a month to do so, the YAAW is for you!
