Young Audiences of Oregon & SW Washingtonhttp://www.ya-or.org
Young Audiences of Oregon & SW Washington inspires young people and expands their learning through the arts. Our programs serve 80,000 students annually by building bridges from professional artists to schools and local communities. We engage a roster around 70 professional teaching artists – including BodyVox, Portland Taiko, and The Obo Addy Legacy Project – whose performances, workshops, and residencies teach children essential lessons about creativity and collaboration, and help kids develop skills for success in modern life and work. Young Audiences helps artists become better teachers, trains classroom teachers to incorporate arts into every school day, and supports schools with arts planning and fundraising.
