SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE YOUTH ADVISORY COMMITTEE
Young people are critical to the development of Sydney Opera House as community contributors, young artists, creative generators, audience patrons and learners. The Youth Advisory Committee at Sydney Opera House has been formed to allow young people to provide advice and new insights, unique to their age group, which will inform programming and new initiatives.
The Committee is comprised of twelve members from the metropolitan and greater Sydney areas, between the ages of 13 – 18 years and covering a diverse representation of cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. All members have an interest in the performing arts and are highly savvy new media users.
The 2012 Youth Advisory Committee was appointed in November 2011.
Reporting to the CEO and providing advice to the Head of Education and Young People, the committee undertakes the following:
• The youth customer experience
• Responding to artistic programming
• Access issues for young people
