Young Creatives

“The programs allow people to be drawn out of that protective bubble we live in, they can get to experience something that is completely different”

- Alex, Youth Committee

MCA’s Young Creatives programs are developed in collaboration with a volunteer team of 14 – 18yr olds, recruited yearly; the MCA Youth Committee.
Through the events, talks, workshops and unique opportunities we have on offer, our team aims to provide you with the platform to create, experiment and challenge your professional and creative skills.
MCA invites you to join our community, connect with like-minded people and work alongside artists and other arts professionals.
If art, performance, music and culture are important to you, then you’ve come to the right place.
