Our building is a happy traffic of people and ideas.
Geelong possesses exciting emerging film makers, visual artists and performers. It has a rich history in music and surf culture, this new artistic program will harness this heritage and provide a platform for new arts action in this city. In order to create outstanding work, there must be a community of trust and encouragement. We want to grow a new culture of creation and in order to do this COURTHOUSE YOUTH ARTS must feed the needs of existing artists to show that it is possible to live a creative life in regional Victoria.
CHYA provides a platform for young and emerging artists to take creative risk and to conceive relevant and contemporary programming in a creative and inclusive environment.
Courthouse Youth Arts was created in 1996, with the intention of becoming a culture and arts hub for the youth of Geelong. Today, we strive to be at the leading edge of the Geelong arts scene. Our aim is to give Geelong’s youth a place where they can come be themselves and have fun, as well as give them the chance to unleash their creative side for the whole world to see.
