DAF Youth Engagement Partnership!

Darlington Arts Festival is offering a new program for 12-17 year old youth in 2022 funded by the Shire of Mundaring.

DAFYEP! offers a range of creative development opportunities for youth who live in or spend recreational time in the Shire of Mundaring. Participants will have the opportunity to develop the outcomes of their project in conjunction with established artists, learn new creative skills (mural painting, sculpture or digital art) and exhibit the final product over the weekend of the Darlington Arts Festival. 

DAFYEP involves three ‘streams’ – Mural, Sculpture and Digital. The eligibility criteria, dates and locations for each stream are set out below. 

MURAL: 

Led by Sioux Tempestt (https://www.siouxtempestt.com), participants will engage in a one-off design and development workshop. Sioux will finalise the design for approval. Sioux, a youth assistant and participants will then be involved in painting of the mural to be completed over the weekend of the Darlington Arts Festival for all to see!
