The Next Generation: Youth Engagement and the Arts

This is a past event.

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.
