YP Events

Finding your new favorite thing to do—that’s ArtsWave in Action.

This past year we created a brand-new Young Professional Grant Program, a new initiative from our YP Committee, funded by 10 percent of the contributions made by YPs to the 2016 ArtsWave Community Campaign.

 ArtsWave YP supports an event series which connects young professionals in our region through shared arts experiences. Every event is different so that you can explore all of the vibrant arts our community has to offer including music, dance, theatre, and museums.
