Proceeds from the concerts will be donated to the Food Bank for New York to feed homeless kids in the greater metropolitan area.

“Many of the young artists have given concerts in their home towns for the less fortunate people in their communities. This type of 'giving' by these youngsters is really what this organization works to highlight and support. This concert will be a wonderful event and become a Youth Arts Forum tradition in New York for years to come" said Barry Salottolo, Founder of

Youth Arts Forum began in the early 1990’s with the mission of uniting the youth of the world through the arts. YAF displayed and sold artwork by young people between the ages of 5 and 18. The forum also produced several renowned art exhibitions in the NoHo Gallery in Manhattan New York, as well as having young artists’ works displayed in retail establishments, like A.I. Friedman, and numerous public and private schools through the greater New York area.

Founded by Barry Salottolo, the “new” Youth Arts Forum is more exciting and far reaching than ever before. In addition to photography, painting and sculpture, the organisation now includes musical and performing arts. This affords creative young people from all over the world the opportunity to showcase their work in the performing and visual arts. This, by its very makeup, will draw young people together in their common passion for the arts.
