More funding to inspire Australia’s creative kids

More young Australians will be supported to pursue artistic endeavours with the Australian Government announcing a further funding boost for youth arts.

The Albanese Labor Government is investing $450,000 in Creative Australia to support its delivery of programs that increase young people’s participation in arts and theatre.

This will provide more opportunities for young people to realise their creative potential and discover new and exciting avenues for cultural expression.

Minister for the Arts, Tony Burke, said young Australians have an important contribution to make to our arts scene.

“Through Revive, our new National Cultural Policy, we’re making sure more Australian stories can be told.

“This funding will help more young people to explore the arts and find their voice.

“I’m pleased that Creative Australia will be driving this investment in our future generation of artists.”

Adrian Collette AM, CEO of Creative Australia said, “This funding augments our capacity to support children and young people to develop their own artistic expression and invest in creative projects and programs made by, with, and for them.

“Creative Australia is actively considering its investments for children and young people through all its existing and future activities in our new incarnation as Creative Australia.”
