New York, NY: DreamYard Art Center

The DreamYard Art Center is located in the Morrisania neighborhood of the South Bronx and serves young people from across the borough as well as Manhattan and Brooklyn. Our programs are rooted in art and social justice practices and include arts and activism, visual arts, theater, digital music, fashion, Maker and poetry.

The DreamYard Art Center was able to grow in size, program offerings, and access to digital tools as part of the YOUmedia network. The expansion will help young people more deeply explore our core beliefs of artistic voice, social justice and community engagement through digital learning tools and practices, as well as space to collaborate and hang out, mentorship from practicing artists, and access to the tools that will help them express their voice in the digital age. Programs created since becoming a YOUmedia site include: digital music production, photo/video production, fashion, and Open Studio.
