Putting the voice of youth at the centre of all we do.

What Is Engage?

Engage is an opportunity to play an active part in company leadership, critically reflect on theatre making in Canberra and add youth voices to the critical conversation about the work appearing on our stages.

Participants act as ambassadors for Canberra Youth Theatre, helping to promote productions and programs and working to build our positive, supportive and creative community.

A group of 12 young and emerging artists aged 15–25 will be selected by application for this exciting opportunity.
