  • Funding? Affordable Programming
    • Funding sources can be a challenge. YAV must compensate the artists and maintain overhead costs in order to fulfill our mission.
    • Residencies can be one of the more expensive ways to provide the arts, but the impact is stronger with a small group. YAV will help with grant writing and identifying funding sources.
