The Australian Talented Youth Project 2015–2016 is a creative opportunity for young emerging artists aged 16–25, with a particular emphasis on those from regional and remote Australia.
The selected young artists will be mentored by leading professionals in the various artistic fields. The year-long face-to-face and electronic mentoring program includes a week-long residential component to be held in Canberra in February 2016, and all accommodation, catering and transportation to and from the residential component are included.
This year, mentorship is available in the following artistic fields:
- Music (Voice)
- Music (Jazz) (keyboard, double bass, guitar, saxophone, vocals
- Writing for Theatre
- Digital Arts
Since there are only 16 places available, which are spread over the various creative and performing arts, the organisers are calling for arts organisations to nominate candidates of the highest calibre. For more information, and the nomination form, please visit the Australian Talented Youth Project website.
Nominations close 15 October 2015.
