AT LONG LAST OUR COMMUNITY WILL HAVE A HOME FOR YOUTH ARTS
Many youth arts organizations are hampered by overcrowded, costly, and inaccessible space. This lack of space limits their ability to offer more educational programs and reach more children.
A VIBRANT DEDICATED SPACE
FOR YOUTH ARTS
Madison’s new youth arts center will provide desperately needed space for Madison Youth Choirs, Children’s Theater of Madison, and many youth arts organizations in our community. Groups who have expressed enthusiastic interest in using this new space include:
Madison’s Youth Arts Center’s Board of Directors is made up of members who benefit from white privilege and members who experience systemic racism and oppression. Together, we make this promise:
Madison’s Youth Arts Center (MYAC) stands in solidarity with communities of color and people who suffer racial injustices in our local community and across the country. We share in the anger and grief of historical racial injustices and marginalization. We pledge to do our part to fight for the changes that are so desperately needed. We commit to looking inward and examining our own beliefs and actions. The MYAC Board of Directors promises to invest in diversity as we build the center, and work to abolish the effects of structural racism. We promise to build a thriving hub of discovery and creativity in which youth from all backgrounds experience a true sense of safety, belonging and celebration of identity.
