Youth Arts

Youth Arts

My involvement in youth arts happened naturally as a progression of my work with school children as an arts facilitator leading up to me working with teenagers and young adults.

Youth Arts is a valuable way for young people to express themselves, build confidence, be exposed to arts practice, develop through team work and build connections with others. Being involved with a Youth Arts project or event can give young people the platform to express themselves and their ideas in a safe environment. Taking part in a positive and creative experience can help to build self esteem and a sense of engagement.

I am a passionate and committed advocate and facilitator of Youth Arts. I have completed NYCI training and holds a Certificate in Youth Arts.
