A one-of-a-kind creative learning and engagement initiative for young First Nations people, this program is made possible by the support of the John and Myriam Wylie Foundation and partnered by the Wilin Centre for Indigenous Arts and Cultural Development at VCA and YIRRAMBOI.
WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?
This free program is a creative learning and engagement initiative for young First Nations people. Previous participants, teaching artists and new participants all work together to explore ways of telling stories for the stage. Different aspects of theatre making are given a focus – script writing, design (lighting, sound, set, costume), improvisation, movement and other performance skills - in practical workshops over the year.
Participants in the program also see a range of theatre shows and other events, as well as meet with industry professionals to explore just what is possible in the creative industries.
The 2022 dates for the program are:
- Mon 4 July – Fri 8 July
- Mon 26 September – Fri 30 September
- Mon 5 December – Fri 9 December
Participants attend all three weeks above. Additional one-off sessions to build experience and connections (and have fun!) are also offered throughout the year as optional.
Applications are now closed. For further information regarding the program please contact please contact Karin or Brodi at firstname.lastname@example.org
