Creative Connections are spaces where youth can explore, learn and grow into their own place in the creative arts industries through connections to exhibition & performance opportunities, internships, formal coursework, and public arts spaces.
Emerging Artist Program
The Emerging Artists Program supports NYC emerging artists between the ages of 14 - 20, who have exhibited exceptional artistic talent, but lack the resources and support to turn that talent into opportunities for their future.
The program provides emerging artists with a rigorous schedule of coursework, project creation, networking, paid internships, showcase opportunities, two-year planning, a transportation stipend and career-counseling in the creative professional industries. Emerging Artists go on to become art students, performers and, above all, responsible young adults with a clear vision and a plan for their personal success.
