ALL GIRL ELECTRONIC
Youth Engagement projects are co-designed with young people across Western Sydney – particularly those who are disengaged, vulnerable or who don’t have regular access to resources, training and development opportunities. The program is responsive and flexible, so that it meets needs as they emerge, while also building networks and creative pathways for long-term artistic development and sustainability.
Youth Engagement provides avenues for young people to gain skills, training and resources to enhance their creative practices. We focus on sustainable arts practice, community-focussed careers, and high-quality artistic outcomes. The program hinges on confidence, self-determination and supportive frameworks.
We have three key program areas that focus on different cohorts of young people:
As well as our up-skilling programs, we collaborate with partners from grass-roots organisations to major institutions to create platforms and opportunities for our artists to present their work.
Our projects draw on the strengths and interests of the young people with whom we work, in ways that are culturally relevant, safe and effective. Our overarching goal is to build strong, interconnected networks of young people that also thrive independently.
