The Australian Talented Youth Project (ATY Project) has been running for 12 years. We provide a multi-arts mentoring program for young, emerging artists aged 16-25 years, especially those from remote and rural areas not readily able to access high level tutorship.
This unique Project developed the first national, residential mentoring program which brought together all major creative and performing arts – music, dance, visual art, creative writing, film production, and drama. The main purpose of the Project is to assist development of young artists’ talent and skills within a collaborative, multidisciplinary model facilitating cross-cultural exchange of ideas, development of community leadership skills and building young people’s supportive networks.
Directed by Liz Lea the program is broadening it’s focus in 2019 to work in a full inclusive, intercultural and intergenerational capacity to benefit as aspects of community and arts across the community.
