Meet the 2017 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 Academy provides a platform to experience, examine and engage in the professional contemporary performing arts community through workshops, discussions and shows, leading up to the PuSh Festival in January. Essentially a “book club” for the contemporary performing arts, the Academy meets on a bi-weekly basis.


Youth Academy Meet Up Dates

Youth Academy meet-ups will take place from November 2016 to February 2017. Precise dates and times will be confirmed shortly and subject to change based on group consensus.
Meetings will be at The Post at 750 (110–750 Hamilton Street), unless otherwise noted.
