NeON Arts Inspires brings together bright minds to conduct interactive conversations that are idea-focused, and biographical to foster learning, inspiration and wonder – and provoke meaningful dialogue about overcoming challenges.

NeON Inspires is a part of NeON Arts, a free program of the NYC Department of Probation in partnership with Carnegie Hall's Weill Music Institute that gives youth the chance to explore the arts through a variety of creative projects throughout the year. Recently, Westat and Metis Associates released an independent evaluation of the program, highlighting the positive impact NeON Arts has had across the city in its first five years.
