The Artists United Youth Committee is the place where young artists aged 25 and under can connect with our organization and help shape programs serving youth. Naima Danilo Eckhardt de Camargo, a brother/sister dynamic duo in Berkeley, CA, are co-chairs of the committee. The Youth Committee is now planning networking events for young artists throughout our Artists United network and will soon begin to connect young artists to our regular program offerings and help develop content serving youth specifically. If you want to be involved directly in the committee, please email Holly Million.
