What is the Place des Arts' Youth Arts Council?

Place des Arts started our Youth Arts Council in 2013 as a way to encourage local teens to engage with the arts community and to provide us with in-the-know info about what teens want to see in terms of arts programming.

The Youth Arts Council is comprised of a dedicated and creative group of teen volunteers who meet regularly to organize and host two youth-oriented events each year and advise Place des Arts on teen engagement.

Teens in grades 9 – 12 interested in participating in Place des Arts' 2017/18 Youth Arts Council are encouraged to contact our Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@placedesarts.ca or 604.664.1636 ext. 36.
