We’re fighting the good fight this week, acknowledging how hard arts careers can be and why we’re still working towards being arts professionals while finding ways to work around questions such as “What is your current salary” in the READ section. Under GO we’re excited to meet the new NYPhil music director Jaap van Zweden, and learning how to apply for grants and residencies. And as always, we have plenty of opportunities for you to APPLY for as well.Read More
Post-art fair week, we hope you are feeling more inspired than depressed. But if you are in need of some uplifting news, check out our READ section where according to a new NEA study we learn just how much the arts contributes to our country’s economy (more than agriculture, transportation, or warehousing!!) In GO, Woman’s Month is coming in strong with panels, conferences, and Art+Feminism Edit-A-Thons! In APPLY, become a DEI Fellow with AAM, plus jobs, jobs, and more jobs. Onwards!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.

YES, you can is the theme of the week!
You can handle that difficult boss by learning strategies for managing up and establishing stronger communication. You can disagree in a professional manner with those more powerful than you in the office, and you can (and probably should) take risks and think out of the box to activate engagement for your organization. Embrace your ability to learn, grow, and participate and check out highlights from this week's round-up below!
