The opportunity to showcase and celebrate creativity, storytelling and performance-making will continue for hundreds of Victorian young people, with St Martins Youth Arts Centre offering innovative online workshops for Term 3, alongside its return to on-site workshops starting July 13th.
The digital workshops, specifically designed for 9 – 12 year-olds and 13 – 17 year-olds, are facilitated by professional practicing artists and are tailored to the age, interests and personalities of the young people.
Underpinned by inclusivity, creativity and collaboration, St Martins works with its young people to build new performances and new worlds, rather than asking them to fit into predefined roles. Its inclusion program is one of a kind across the Australian youth performing arts sector, offering a dedicated inclusion artist in each workshop alongside the lead artist.
The young people will be involved in a range of contemporary performance making activities including creating solo and group performances, ensemble games, movement, storytelling and for the older students, script writing. Building week by week, both digital and on-site workshops move the young people towards an open showing at the end of the term.
St Martins’ Artistic Director, Nadja Kostich, said the digital workshops were a major success in Term 2, captivating families to enrol their young person from around the state.
