“Supporting the arts has always been important to me. I believe in the work NYA does in supporting artists and ensuring that those outside of the downtown core have access to arts/culture programming as it enriches the fabric of our city.” Mira Lax,  Donor

Will you provide your community with the space to create? A gift of just $24.75 provides NYA with the means to make space for one person.
