2017 NYAS delegates

National Youth Arts Summit

Big issues, brain-stretching ideas, intimate conversations, practical actions.

Friday 6 October 2017

Carclew is pleased to present an ongoing opportunity for national conversation and connection by hosting the 2017 National Youth Arts Summit.

Over the last two years, Australia Council for the Arts held national youth arts gatherings to support our sector as we responded to the changing funding environment and shared our concerns for the future of the only national networking and advocacy body, Young People and the Arts Australia (YPAA).

Located in and around the iconic Carclew House and immediately following the Australian Theatre Forum, the 2017 National Youth Arts Summit will bring together artists, arts workers and young creatives who are engaged in art making with, and for, children and young people, in all art forms, across the country.

The day-long program will be broken into three sections:
Provocations (short keynotes around core themes)
Breakout Workshops (your chance to reflect and share)
And after lunch, Where now? And how? where the ever fabulous Kate Gould will lead us out of the workshop haze and into strategic thinking about how we move forward as a national sector.

MASTERCLASS: The artistry of the youth arts facilitator
As an addition to the day-long National Youth Arts Summit at Carclew, we present a rare and exciting professional development opportunity for artists working within the youth arts arena. Co-led by four youth arts facilitators, each representing a different arts practice, this masterclass will give you an intensive insight into, and practical experience of, their creative methods and madness.

This is your opportunity to indulge in some on-the-floor professional development.

Refreshments included.
