Registrations are now open for the 2017 National Youth Arts Summit delivered by Carclew in Adelaide on Friday 6 October.

Over the last two years, Australia Council for the Arts held national youth arts gatherings to support our sector as we responded to the changing funding environment and shared our concerns for the future of the only national networking and advocacy body, Young People and the Arts Australia (YPAA).
