Young people are at the forefront of creative movements globally. Be it a new wave of artistic expression, an innovative form of community arts or the intersection of creativity and activism, progress in the arts is frequently youth-centred and youth-led. The Creative Contribution Award celebrates those young people who are using creative and artistic practice to tell compelling stories, reflect the world and uplift their peers.
This award is open to artists, arts facilitators, art teachers and arts workers aged 10 – 25, working across any discipline, including community arts, visual arts, film, theatre, performance, dance, music, literature, community arts, media arts and interdisciplinary practice.
Finalists for this Award will have the opportunity to work with Perth Festival staff on a creative development workshop.
