We’re Looking for Teaching Artists!

28 Jun

Young Audiences of Oregon & SW Washington

It’s that time of year again…where the application process is open for all residency and performance artists wanting to become Roster Artists with Young Audiences.

Following is just the basic information…

Young Audiences is looking for teaching 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 also choose to become arts providers for the Right Brain Initiative, through Young Audiences. Applications are due August 12, 2011 at 4:30 pm. For more information and to access the application, please go to ”Services for Artists” on our website:  www.ya-or.org.
