JOIN YAP

If you're a young adult and want to build community, make art, and connect with bipoc lbgtq+ artists, we want to hear from you!

WHAT WE DO

From collaborative to individual art projects: we host teen exhibitions, skill-sharing workshops with guest teaching artists, gallery visits, outdoor hangs, and much more

GROW WITH US

We're invested in carving a space where people can express themselves and reclaim agency via art-making: 

Help us grow by contributing to our needs: supplies, studio furniture, stipends etc...

"When you find a group of people you can actually smile with, that's when you realize you belong."
