Y.Ex 2020-2021 Application

No Longer Empty’s Young Exhibition Makers (Y.Ex) is a year-long program that trains and pays New York City youth (ages 14 to 19) in all elements of exhibition making, from curation to installation, tours, working with artists and management.

The pillars of this program are arts mentoring, youth leadership, and real life work experience. Youth will learn creative writing, (public) art history, public speaking/oratory skills and media literacy through working closely with curators, artists, and community leaders. This year's programming will focus on mental health and dis/ability, art as activism, and wellness over illness. No previous experience necessary, just an open heart and mind.

Y.Ex sessions will take place on Saturdays from 1pm - 3pm throughout the city. Orientation will be on Saturday, March 20th, from 1pm - 3pm. We will provide snacks for everyone.

After orientation, our first sessions will begin on Saturday, March 28th 2020. More details on session and trip locations will be provided at the first meeting.

All applications due by Tuesday, March 10th 11:59pm. If you have any questions, please email
