Young Audiences of Western New York is now Arts for Learning WNY!

We began our journey 60 YEARS AGO with the mission to cultivate the next generation of audience members at theaters, concert halls, and cultural centers. In our long history, our goal has always been to inspire generations to be lifelong consumers, creators, and appreciators of the arts. 


While we have not wavered in this endeavor, over the past 60 years, we’ve expanded and evolved. Our students are no longer just audience members. They participate and perform, create and compose, explore and engage. With this in mind, we developed a strategic communications plan that led us to identify a new name that reflects our commitment to the community.

Stay tuned as this exciting transition rolls out over the next several months, culminating during National Arts-in-Education Week in September 2022.
