Workshops

Our programs

Our workshops bring young people together to think imaginatively, express themselves artistically, and discover the joys of performance. 

We treat young people as artists in their own right, empowering them to find their own unique voice and share their stories.

Our Workshop Artists are professional theatre-makers who are passionate about collaborating and creating work with young people. Together they make exciting work that challenges us to see the world from new perspectives.

Our weekly Ensembles are semester-long programs that run in line with school terms. Participants learn a wide range of skills across many performance styles, creating an end of semester showcase performance for family and friends.

Whether you are considering pursuing a professional career in the arts, or simply want to expand your skills, make new friends, and have fun, Canberra Youth Theatre is a safe, inclusive space for all young people to be creative, share their voice, and explore their passion.

In 2022, we will be delivering our workshop programs at Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centres, Belconnen Arts Centre, The Q – Queanbeyan Performing Arts Centre, and in Gunghalin.

We offer a range of workshops for school age artists in years 1 to 12. Artists between the ages of 18 to 25 come under our Emerging Artists Program.

We are committed to diversity and acknowledge that some of the best art comes from working with artists from a range of backgrounds and abilities. If you have any access requirements or special needs, please get in touch – workshops@canberrayouththeatre.com.au or 02 6248 5057
