Young Audiences New Jersey & Eastern Pennsylvania (YA) is excited to announce our Artist Innovation Fund. This fund was created for YA’s teaching artists to develop new, innovative content that will engage students, teachers, families, and fellow teaching artists during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond. With funding from our generous donors and foundations, we are offering grants ranging from $500- $2,000. This opportunity is open exclusively to artists on Young Audiences New Jersey & Eastern Pennsylvania’s roster.

This round of grants will total $27,000 and was made possible with support from The Jay and Linda Grunin Foundation, PNC, and donors to YA. Funds will be used to support new programming, artist to artist professional learning, and programs to support early childhood learners from PK to age 6.

The Artist Innovation Fund is part of YA’s ongoing efforts to support teaching artists, school partners, children, and families throughout the region during the COVID-19 crisis.
