Youth for Youth Program 2018

April 05, 2018

The Vancouver International Children’s Festival Society’s Youth for Youth (Y4Y) program provides training, mentorship and performance opportunities for emerging artists and young people ages 15-24. The program develops their artistic skills and allows them to create innovative and engaging work for presentation at the Festival. This year, emerging artists will work with Deborah Williams at the ‘Your Story, Your Voice’ Workshop designed for each participant to develop their personal story.

Once the workshop is completed a select group of participants will be invited to create a new piece of storytelling theatre in One of a Kind, which will be performed at the 2018 Vancouver International Children’s Festival.

Our Youth for Youth program is made possible with support from Metro Vancouver and the RBC Foundation.
