Young creatives invited to shape Latrobe City’s artistic programming
Latrobe City Council invites young people to be part of a creative panel to develop arts programs through the Valley Collective program.
The Gippsland Performing Arts Center (GPAC) will guide the program, bringing together up to ten Latrobe City residents between the ages of 16 and 25.
Panel members will have the opportunity to become creative producers, empowered to design and produce a festival with the support of the Gippsland Performing Arts Center team.
The program will provide exclusive access to industry mentors, opportunities to attend selected GPAC shows and creative workshops.
The Mayor of Latrobe City Council, Cr Kellie O’Callaghan, encouraged young creatives to apply for the panel.
“Latrobe City is home to creatives of all styles – from theater and dance to film and music and everything in between. This is an open invitation to share your ideas, learn from those already in the industry, and shape something special.
“We are committed to creating more opportunities for young people to experience leadership. Along with the Youth Council, this is another program that will deliver positive results for those who are part of it,” the mayor said.
A monthly digital newsletter will also be available as part of the program, providing dedicated information on Valley Collective events, workshops, access to discounted tickets to select GPAC shows, and engagement opportunities to inform the future programming.
The program is supported by the Commitment from the Ministry of Families, Equity and Housing! Grant program 2022-2024.
