Youth Academy

The Youth Academy is a unique opportunity for a small group of professionally minded young people who hope to pursue a life and career immersed in and around the performing arts. The Youth Academy provides a platform to experience, examine and engage in the professional contemporary performing arts community through workshops, discussions and shows, leading up to and during the PuSh Festival in January. Like a book club but for the live performing arts, the Academy meets on a bi-weekly basis.

Meet-up dates

The Youth Academy meet-ups take place on Thursday evenings from November 2018 to February 2019. The first session takes place on November 1. Following dates and times may be subject to change based on group consensus. Meet-ups are held at The Post at 750, unless otherwise discussed.
