Young Audiences’ Artist Applications Being Taken

14 Oct

We want artists who…

• are committed to inspiring the imaginations of young people
• know the craft of their art forms deeply, through study and experience, and have their own dynamic artistic practices
• bring young people into the world of their art forms, and embolden them to explore
• see themselves as learners and teachers, and seek out opportunities for growth
• show a willingness to collaborate
• have experience with, and strategies for, working with the complexities and challenges of school environments
• are based in the Portland metropolitan area

We welcome applications from residency and performing artists in all disciplines. Our programs are based in a 10-county area in Oregon and SW Washington. Schools (especially elementary schools) are the largest populations served, and some programming takes place in community settings. Some of our roster artists are also arts providers for the Right Brain Initiative, through Young Audiences, and this is an option for applicants as well.

We’ll be having informational meetings where you can learn more about joining the YA roster. We’re holding these meetings jointly with the Right Brain Initiative, so that you can learn more about both programs at the same meeting. Feel free to attend either meeting to learn about the qualifications we seek and our application processes.
