Courthouse Youth Arts is Geelong’s only multi-form cultural organisation dedicated to artistic outcomes by and for people aged 26 and under.

Since opening in 1996, we’ve advocated for youth arts practice and provided young and emerging artists with opportunities to try different artforms and develop their craft.
Geelong possesses exciting emerging film makers, visual artists and performers. It has a rich history in music and surf culture and Courthouse Youth Arts artistic programs harness this heritage and provide a platform for new arts action in this city.
Courthouse Youth Arts aims to show that it is possible to live a rich creative life in regional Victoria.
