Please consider Investing in Young Evanston Artists!

Each year Evanston's YEA! festival showcases the work and performances of aspiring young Evanston artists in a day long celebration of the arts. In addition to providing a gallery like atmosphere YEA is expanding with workshops and art based activities. This 30 year old festival has built up an annual attendance of over 5,000 children and families.

2018 is a pivotal year for this Not-for-Profit organization. The new board strives to reflect the diversity of the City of Evanston in its membership. The goal of the new board is not to change a successful event but to enhance the great idea it was born out of, which is to maintain the mutual support between Evanston residents and the business community.

This festival is a unique combination of the efforts of our Evanston students, Evanston art teachers, Evanston businesses and the Northshore Community. Your contributions not only reinforce the importance of the arts in the schools but the importance of sharing art within the community. By investing in YEA! You are providing support for future generations of artists and performers.
