Our Mission

Ensure opportunities for young people to express themselves, discover the arts, and create connections. Serve as home for the Children’s Theater of Madison and Madison Youth Choirs.

Our Vision

By 2025, the Madison Youth Arts Center will be recognized and valued as a vibrant community space. Youth from all backgrounds will explore, create, and connect through an array of impactful arts programming that evolves with the mission of those who call the center home.
