Young Audience Program (YAP)

FIAF’s Young Audience Program (YAP) returns this fall—see schedule below! We are delighted to welcome students back for in-person workshops, performances, and film screenings. Covering a range of topics from contemporary dance to climate change, this season’s programming is closely tied to FIAF’s cultural calendar—giving students the opportunity to engage with artists and ideas from around the French-speaking world and beyond.

About YAP: FIAF’s Young Audience Program (YAP) is an education outreach initiative that offers school students the unique opportunity to attend award-winning performances and films selected for their artistic excellence and connection to French and Francophone cultures. The program is open to French as well as non-French speakers from K to 12th grade.

Free for Public & Charter Schools: Tickets are always free for public and charter schools and affordable for others. .

Post-Show Discussions: After each event, students participate in an interactive Q&A session with the artists, which helps them build a stronger comprehension of the arts.

Study Guides: Committed to creating impactful and long-lasting experiences for students, FIAF helps educators prepare their classes through study guides, which include detailed content about the event and suggestions for pre-/post-event activities.
