Please go ahead and register and we will add your name to the Wait List if we have already reached capacity.
If we receive additional funding, we might be able to offer an additional week later in the summer.
We will also keep your information on hand so that you will be among the first to receive the announcement of next summer's AIRF Youth ArtBeat weeks.
