Canvas Circle

The Canvas Circle is a distinctive group of supporters of Young Audiences New York who are
committed to raising awareness and support so that all of New York City’s children get the
chance to create. Members are a part of a network of professionals under 40 in New York City
who share an interest in arts & education. Canvas Circle members engage a variety of
educational activities and social events to support the organization’s dynamic programs
throughout New York City.

As a member of Canvas Circle patrons have the opportunity to develop a closer association with
Young Audiences New York through participation in school programs, fundraising, and decision-
making around the allocation of resource.

We gather a few times a year, to network, champion each other’s careers–and socialize with a
purpose. We are currently growing our circle. Please let us know if you are interested in
becoming involved by contacting us at
