Young Creatives

Perth Festival Young Creatives

Perth Festival is seeking passionate Young Creatives who hope to contribute to culture and the arts in Western Australia.

Young Creatives is a unique development program that provides aspiring arts professionals aged 15 – 18 with opportunities to explore a career in the arts. Young Creatives connect with Perth Festival artists, performers and practitioners as they participate in an immersive and individualised program of activities.

Young Creatives attend performances and events, engage behind-the-scenes and participate in exclusive one-on-one opportunities with select Festival performers, practitioners and artists. Participants build their critical engagement with the arts through facilitated discussions that provide context and knowledge and encourage them to think critically about the arts.

We are seeking passionate Young Creatives with interests in photography, music, visual arts, performance, literature or film to join us for Perth Festival 2019. For more information and your chance to get involved register online below. Applications close 8 November 2018.
