Description

There is no longer a quarantined funding stream for youth theatre in Australia - we were working to transition to four year funding 2017 - 2020 but given that we were not sucessful in attaining project program funding in the Sept 1 2015 round for 2016 we are now $60K down at very short notice. Funding at the Federal level is very important for leveraging funds from a range of other sources and is also seen as an endorsement of our practice. We have built our practice since 1998 around a vision of: young people telling their important stories through theatre; and young emerging artists establishing professional practice pathways. We are always concerned to make excellent work with a focus on being accessible, inclusive, innovative and responsive to the interests and needs of young people. Our work supports capacity building, social and economic inclusion and community engagement through the theatre arts. Our core business has been: cross sector partnerships and programming, youth engaged collaboratively developed new works and facilitating emerging artists professional practice pathways. We believe: no young person exists without context, diverse voices give us diverse art and that young emerging artists need industry entry points. Federal electorate: Melbourne Ports Transitional funding claim: $60,000 Projected job losses (full-time equivalent):  0.4
