Artscape Youth Day

Artscape Youth Day

We’re not “kidding” around! Artscape’s opening day – Friday, July 20th – is Youth Day! Baltimore youth artists, makers, and performers – come join us this summer, for an opportunity to showcase your creative and artistic talents.

BOPA looks forward to highlighting youth-focused programming (both performance and visual, indoor and outdoors). If you have an idea/proposal, we welcome the opportunity to hear more about your program(s). Email artscape@promotionandarts.org to share more.

If you’d like to go ahead and apply with a specific performance or project in mind, be sure to check out the Performing Arts application and/or the Kidscape application, and note your interest in Youth Day in the application.
