As the arts sector re-imagines its future, the question of pathways for young people to engage with the arts has become critical. Our first SAMAG seminar of 2016 brings together some of the key proponents of youth engagement to explore the current challenges and opportunities in the work of developing the next generation (and the next) of artists and audiences. Join Chair Lex Hirst, Co- Director, National Young Writers' Festival, as she leads a conversation with Belinda Sculley, Young Creatives Coordinator at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, Fraser Corfield, Artistic Director, Australian Theatre for Young People (ATYP) and Andrew Johnson, NSW Advocate for Children and Young People, along with young artists for this critical conversation.
