Young & Hungry - What we do
Experienced | Professional | Accessible
Young and Hungry Arts Trust (Y&H) supports young and emerging creatives into the world of the performing arts. It might be sparking an interest in students, supporting young people to jump into theatre appreciation, going deep into the technical aspects of production or working with playwrights to showcase their work. We have been delivering for nearly 30 years, and understand our role in the sector. Our reach is both national, through our annual Y&H Schools Tour, and Wellington-based, through our Y&H Ambassadors programme. Young and emerging creatives can access Y&H once, or use us as a pathway to a career in the sector. We also work closely with partners and others in the arts and education sectors to deliver an outstanding experience.
To nurture the development of tomorrow’s performing arts practitioners and audiences.
To provide a safe and supportive environment where young and emerging creatives are empowered and encouraged to create, participate in and appreciate NZ theatre.
Our Values describe the Y&H experience:
Give it a go – we’re here to support you achieve your goals.
Put your hand up – we’ll link you with the expertise you need.
Be open – we’re here to give you new and lasting experiences.
Share what you learn – let’s build a vibrant community.
Leave a legacy – so that NZ plays are shared, scripted and enjoyed.
