NeON Arts offers young people in seven New York City communities the chance to explore the arts through a variety of creative projects at local community-based probation offices called Neighborhood Opportunity Networks (NeONs). The Weill Music Institute facilitates the program’s grant-making process, coordinates citywide NeON Arts events, and works with arts organizations and NeON stakeholders to ensure that each project, including planning and implementation, is a collaboration that benefits the entire community.
NeON Arts funds and supports New York City artists and organizations who partner with NeON communities to deliver arts projects that help young people develop creative, social, and emotional skills, and build positive peer relationships.
