Carclew invited young artists, arts workers and creatives from all parts of Australia to MAKE SPACE for critical conversations and exchange at the next National Youth Arts Summit, 12 & 13 September 2019.
Since our last convergence (Adelaide 2017), Australia and indeed the world has witnessed significant events and social movements demanding radical action for change. Creative responses, often led by young people, call for governments and institutions to take action on climate change, violence against women and children, the humane treatment of asylum seekers, recognition of our First Australians and the right to live in a safe and secure world despite cultural background, values or beliefs. This was the backdrop for our two day-event.
This year’s NYAS saw young people running the event.
Carclew’s Creative Consultants – talented young creatives will lead a series of activities during day one with young delegates from across Australia. Outcomes from this day will be woven into day two’s program and speakers will be tasked to reflect and consider how new ideas can be adapted into practice, leadership, advocacy, innovation and sector structure..
Australia Council’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Arts Fellow for 2019, Jacob Boheme our keynote speaker made his voice heard. Challenging us to consider what we can learn from First Nations cultures around the world to build new sustainable futures and environments that are equitable and fair.
On offer, participatory based workshops. Jesse Budel a composer, performer and sound artist took us on a collaborative journey of immersive surround sound. Manal Younus, ActNow Theatre associate artist explored the power of spoken word and slam poetry, sharing techniques to create it with young people from all cultural backgrounds.

7:00pm Girl Asleep | Windmill Theatre Company | special delegate offer
Mayhem. Adventure. Hormones.
Greta Driscoll is chronically shy and privately falling apart.
Frozen in the spotlight of her fifteenth birthday, things go from bad to worse when a stranger arrives propelling her into a parallel place; a latent world that’s weirdly erotic, violent and thoroughly ludicrous.
Part fairytale and part lipstick-smeared vigilante escapade, this is a girl’s own adventure where heroism and gender implode in a unique exposé of the sisterhood.
NYAS delegates can access $25 tickets for this performance. Once registered we will forward the discount codeword to use when purchasing tickets online with BASS.
