Western Edge Youth Arts
Creates unique, socially engaged performances working in collaborative partnerships with communities, schools and young people.
Our performances are artistically complex, socially engaged, funny, challenging and beautiful. We know this because of our extensive audience response data.
Our focus is on providing ACCESS to high quality arts experiences to young people – particularly from CALD and disadvantaged backgrounds – who would not otherwise have access to them.
Western Edge supports, mentors and trains CALD emerging artists to become cultural leaders in their own communities and beyond through the arts.
Western Edge is a community of leading practitioners with specific skills in arts education, community arts and Applied Theatre.
Western Edge is committed to making excellent art for audiences that will are unlikely to ever attend main stream venues.
Western Edge projects are grounded in research and reflective practice – we believe in the importance of theory and intellectual rigour underpinning all our work.
