Creative Producer Regional Youth

Co-funded and managed by Carclew and Country Arts SA, the role of the Creative Producer Regional Youth is to be a listener, cheer squad, connector, collaborator, facilitator, champion and ally for creative people aged 12 – 26 living across regional South Australia.

Alysha Herrmann is the current Creative Producer Regional Youth. She is a daughter of the regions, currently living and working from Glossop in this statewide role. She is an experienced and award winning youth arts practitioner, artist and arts worker.

In collaboration with young people and their communities, Alysha is developing specific and targeted projects and programs to build the creative capacity of new generations of creative leaders. Following the successful Youth Arts Faciliatator Hothouse, Alysha is currently working with ART SQUAD, a cohort of nine young, regional South Australians.   ART SQUAD is a creative youth program built to identify and nurture the next generation of creative leaders in regional South Australia. Initiated through a partnership between Carclew and Country Arts SA, ART SQUAD will generate and deliver creative projects in their community and support other members to do the same in their own regions.

Express Media, in partnership with Carclew and Country Arts SA have developed and launched Toolkits: Regional Playwriting. A 12-week, step-by-step program brings together play theory, practical exercises, script study, group workshopping, and one-on-one mentorship to guide young regional writers through the ins and outs of playwriting.

For young people and those working with young people in the regions, Alysha is also available as a first port of call to connect to the range of other opportunities provided by both Carclew and Country Arts SA.
