Let's Celebrate District 7! We will highlight one of San Francisco's most beloved youth groups, Youth Art Exchange. Join us in a button-making activity while learning information about their programming and creative spaces in San Francisco.
Youth Art Exchange exists to make sure that San Francisco public high school students have critical access to the arts. And they do this by offering free multidisciplinary programming taught by artists for public high school students and their communities at their new arts hub [x]space in the Excelsior and creative spaces citywide.
About Youth Art Exchange
Youth Art Exchange (YAX) was founded in 2000 as Out of Site Youth Arts Center by an architect, Beth Rubenstein, and a visual artist, Jennifer Stuart, in response to growing needs for arts education for public high school students. As practicing artists and educators, YAX’s founders recognized the power of arts education to open doors for young people while the opportunities for public school students were rapidly diminishing. These youth, primarily low-income students and students of color, were those that were most lacking opportunities to deeply engage with the arts. YAX was founded to fill this gap in access to the arts, which is increasingly relevant with growing disparities in the city.
