Youth Ambassadors Program
Youth Ambassadors are inspired individuals in year 11 who consider themselves advocates of the creative arts. They could be budding critics, visual artists, sound designers, curators, or simply attentive audience members.
The free program includes gallery and theatre visits, artist-led workshops or forums, and invitations to participate in critical discussions around the featured works. Students are given the freedom to debate, test, and puzzle over ideas with like-minded students from other schools and creative practitioners. Through this, fortyfivedownstairs hopes to provide individuals with the opportunity to pursue a lifelong interest and involvement with the creative arts.
In return, ambassadors are encouraged to share their experiences with their friends, family, and school community, further promoting the creative arts and fortyfivedownstairs.
