Are you aged 15 – 25 and keen to develop exciting projects for your community?
BRAG is on the lookout for people aged 15 – 25 to form a peer-led group to work together on art and cultural activities and develop life skills. No experience or knowledge of art is required.
This opportunity includes access to funded artist-led workshops, peer mentoring, meeting other youth led art groups and a budget to use for projects such as a weekend arts festival, a pop up exhibition or a participatory public art project.
Group members will meet monthly for a 1.5 hour session to discuss and workshop ideas as a group, and contribute extra time as required.
Each participant will receive a $25 spend local gift card for attending each session, access to a transport subsidy, and each session will include food and drinks.
Applications are now open and close on 22 February 2021. Successful applicants will be notified by 26 February, with the first meeting to be held in early March.
