Message from Jana Napoli, Founder of YA/YA
Dear YAYA Family,
I hope you and your loved ones are doing as well as possible in these trying times. In response to the overwhelming impact of COVID-19, the Ana & Adeline Foundation has made a $15,000 emergency grant to YAYA to help sustain their staff and is dedicating $120,000 to the INFUSION GRANT, an emergency relief fund for YAYA alumni to help stabilize their lives and - by extension - their artistic practice.
COVID-19 has created enormous global chaos. During a crisis, artists help us make sense of the world. They create visions interpreting rights and wrongs. They paint portals of empathy and hope. Artists design a better way forward for society. The Ana & Adeline Foundation is dedicated to supporting the YAYA family and their sustainability as creative citizens of the world.
