Ideas Series

The Youth Assembly, now in its second year, is a free day-long performance arts conference just for arts-minded young people who hope to pursue a life or maybe a career immersed in and around the performing arts. There will be a focus on emerging artists and youth engagement. The Youth Assembly – a keynote speaker, panel discussion and breakout discussions – is part of an important global discourse and your chance to contribute, network and build community.
