The YAYA Arts Center is abuzz with the arrival of our new Executive Director! After a decade of working in the arts in New York City, most recently at Creative Capital, New Orleans native Meg Miles is back home and taking over the reins at YAYA. Meg will lead the organization into a new school year, a full season of workshops, and enhanced community programs at our Central City campus.
The staff is currently preparing the studio before we welcome back our YAYA students for the fall semester. Drop by and meet us, as well as our returning artists, during studio hours M-F 10am-5pm. Email meg@yayainc.com to schedule a visit, and join us at Just Say YAYA on November 18
YAYA’s mission is to empower creative young people to become successful adults. We provide educational experiences in the arts and entrepreneurship to New Orleans-area children and youth, fostering and supporting their individual ambitions.
