Youth leaders currently in 9-12th grade are encouraged to apply by June 3, 2019, to join the National Young Artists Summit 2019 Planning Team. The Summit will be held on Saturday, November 2 in Austin, TX, in conjunction with the national Conference for Community Arts Education.
The Summit brings together youth, ages 13-24, from across the country to share their artistry; participate in workshops on topics such as leadership, racial equity, and arts entrepreneurship; and organize towards a collective call to action. It is a program of the Creative Youth Development National Partnership.
As a team member, you would be responsible for designing this year’s Summit, leading sessions, and reaching out to other young artists to participate. The Team consists of up to 10 youth members who serve for a minimum term of six months, and meets virtually once a week from June-October (usually Wednesdays, from 5-6pm ET). Team members are expected to attend all meetings; actively participate in all planning, coordination, and facilitation activities; and be present for the Youth Summit (arriving Friday, Nov. 1 in Austin and participating in the Summit all day on Saturday, Nov. 2).
The 2019 Conference for Community Arts Education is a national convening which aims to ensure all people have opportunities to maximize their creative potential.
