About Us

MADISON'S YOUTH ARTS CENTER (MYA)

After years of dreaming for a permanent, youth-focused, high-quality home for youth arts providers in our community, a lead gift in October 2018 by Pleasant Rowland and an incredible partnership with Stone House Development has pushed this idea to reality. Set to open in summer 2021, the facility will provide youth arts providers space to affordably and comfortably do their work now and for decades to come.

OUR MISSION: Ensure opportunities for young people to express themselves, discover the arts, and create connections. Serve as home for the Children’s Theater of Madison and Madison Youth Choirs.

OUR VISION: By 2025, the Madison Youth Arts Center will be recognized and valued as a vibrant community space. Youth from all backgrounds will explore, create, and connect through an array of impactful arts programming that evolves with the mission of those who call the center home.

OUR VALUES:

  • Discovery: We celebrate activities that nurture young people’s curiosity, bring together youth from diverse backgrounds and create community through the exchange of ideas.
  • Inclusion: We welcome all young people to experience the arts and we strive to foster a sense of belonging among all involved.
  • Collaboration: We pursue connections that create shared experiences, cultivate insight, and inspire growth.

A $35M fundraising campaign is nearly completed with just $1.5M left to raise. With this campaign we are fully funding the construction and furnishing of the building; establishing a permanent endowment for long-term capital expenditures; and most importantly, committing $5-6M for an access fund that will enable the center to operate while providing affordable, accessible space to youth arts program providers from throughout Madison. In short, the access fund supports a long-term business plan that is NOT dependent on the budgets of non-profits who are already under-resourced.
