ATYP and Sydney Festival are excited to invite 40 young people to have a festival experience like no other! During the 2017 Sydney Festival a lucky group of young performers in Years 10-12 from across NSW will spend a week with festival artists and industry leaders - including ATYP Artistic Director Fraser Corfield - participating in workshops, attending shows and creating a performance as part of the festival.
Participants will spend five action-packed days honing their craft in special ATYP theatre workshops, building their show and attending a raft of great festival shows and events. All participants will receive special artist passes and have the opportunity to meet both international and local performers and theatre makers as part of the residency.
To make up the 40 participants, there are 20 spaces for young people aged 15-18 from regional NSW to stay with families in Sydney and be part of this unique and exciting week.
