Inclusion Scholarship Program
Tantrum is for every young person but especially those who feel left out, like they don’t belong or that their voices aren’t being heard.
In 2019, Tantrum established partnerships with respected community service providers – headspace Newcastle and Northlakes Youth Services – to make our afternoon Drama + Performance Workshops more accessible to young people with genuine barriers to participating in the arts. Thanks to the support of our major donors, Tantrum is able to offer scholarships in 2020 to young people facing disadvantage, including social isolation, financial hardship, mental health and disability.
Each scholarship supports one young person to attend a full year of weekly afternoon workshops at Tantrum at no cost (valued at $1000).
We are committed to providing meaningful creative opportunities to young people who stand to gain the most but would otherwise miss out.
“Self-expression and community connection go a long way to a young person’s well-being.
The Tantrum OPEN scholarships offer just that – a chance for a young person attending headspace to be part of a creative community for an entire year. As workers at headspace we value these community partnerships which consolidate the work we do on site and help young people thrive.” – Byron Williams, Community Development Worker, headspace Newcastle
Our 2020 Tantrum OPEN Scholarships are made possible by: GOODWILL (a donation from the Goodwin, O’Neal, Dunstan and Walsh Family), Hearing Hub, the Leggatt Family, Pettigrew Family Funerals, and the Psychologists of Newcastle (Psychology Options, Newpsych Psychologists, the Hummingbird Centre, Life Matters Psychologists and Psychology One).
