It’s the last sprint to the holiday break and doesn’t December just always feel a little too short? So many holiday parties, drinks, year-end festivities to go to before we wind down this year. While enjoying those cocktails, there’s always a chance to expand your network, and in READ we share an article on how to do so. This week we’re also loving the interview with one of our YPA Members Luiza Teixeira-Vesey from NYFA. We share mostly free events in our GO section, we know budget’s are tight during gifting season but that doesn’t mean you have to cut down on your outings. Under APPLY this week, we’re sharing a very special opportunity to volunteer with us! We would love to hear from you if you’re interested in contributing and gaining experience at the same time. Write us :)Read More

Full steam ahead for all of us after this lovely Labor Day Weekend!
We hope you managed to get some well-deserved rest and are ready to conquer this new school year and programming season. Even if you're not on a semester/season schedule, doesn't it always feel like new beginnings after Labor Day? We might not be doing our usual back-to-school shopping anymore (new notebooks and pens, anyone?) but leaving the slow summer behind, we're ready to take on new work projects, geared with YPA arts resources, and looking forward to plenty of YPA events this fall!
More, as always, in this week's round-up below.

All the more reason to immerse ourselves in artsy events this week, keep reading interesting articles and be productive at work. The lack of picnics in the park can only be a good thing as we set our timers to be productive for 25 minutes at a time (see For The Homebody section below). The remainder of the week will be spent browsing the visualized map of the art world and thinking about our portfolio career. As always, if you're on the job hunt - we've got you covered.Read More
