Youth Arts: Why we should care what young people think
Date: Wednesday 11 September 2019
Time: 5pm MCA Young Guide-led tour of Shaun Gladwell: Pacific Undertow, 6pm event
Where: Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, 140 George Street, The Rocks NSW
What kinds of expertise do young people bring – as creative producers or advisors? What is their impact and how is the practice of our arts organisations responding to their contribution? How are young people being reached, communicated with and included in the arts beyond being sought as audience members? What does the arts sector look like to newcomers and what are some of the barriers to their involvement?
Hear from a panel of young people and youth arts workers about their experiences and advice on where organisations should start if they haven’t already.
