This collaboration brings together two strong like-minded organizations dedicated to serving and supporting a diverse field with the belief in the importance of great art for young people. This unique partnership will unite a large cross-section of the field and deepen national and international conversations.
Calling all artists, presenters, producers and practitioners in the field of young audiences!
