Connect: The Young Connectors Creative Leadership Program
Connect is Arts Centre Melbourne’s new launch pad for the next generation of creative leaders from across the arts sector and beyond.
Connect centres young people as leaders, delivering opportunities for them to come together, building their capacity to engage creatively and collaboratively with the challenges we face in these volatile and divisive times.
Connect comprises a year-long program of mentorship for a selected group of Young Connectors, who receive access to arts experiences, professional development and opportunities for peer learning and networking with industry professionals at Arts Centre Melbourne.
The Young Connectors also gain hands-on experience as co-curators and producers of activities for young people at Arts Centre Melbourne, including POST, a public program designed to engage emerging leaders in thinking critically and responding creatively to performing arts practice.
POST will take place at The Channel throughout May and June – more details to be announced in April.
Applications for the next intake of Young Connectors will open in July.
