Eventide Conversations: Adapting to Engage Young Audiences
Tue 28 Sept 2021
In partnership with Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association, the third of our Eventide Conversations takes place on Tue 28 September. Curated by independent director and producer Ching Ching Ho and Executive Director of the Hong Kong Ballet Heidi Lee, this program provides opportunities for engagement and knowledge exchange between arts and cultural leaders in Hong Kong and Australia.
The Theatre for Young Audiences and Youth Arts sector plays a vital role in the arts and society more broadly. In the current precarious nature of COVID restrictions, this sector’s ongoing discussion and actions inspire the community to move towards regenerating a more sustainable, equitable and inclusive future. In this talk, our speakers will share what they have reinvented and adapted to engage artists and audiences, how the sector connects with technology, and what is required to connect with and support young people as we grow through the pandemic.
Hosted by Tamara Harrison (Head of Children, Families and Creative Learning of Sydney Opera House), joined by speakers Lynn Yau (CEO of The Absolutely Fabulous Theatre Connection) and Sasha Zahra (Associate Director, Windmill Theatre).
The project is supported by the National Foundation for Australia-China Relations.
The conversation will be captioned. AUSLAN interpretation can be provided on request; please contact us at email@example.com.
