Youth Arts in the Hunter for over 40 Years
Make Noise. Make Connections. Make Change.

Tantrum Transformed

Drama + Performance Workshops

Tantrum is the leading youth arts organisation in the Hunter with over 40 years of experience. As a registered charity and not-for-profit, we're focused on inclusion and social impact, providing opportunities for young people to gain the skills and confidence to make noise, make connections and make change.

Already know and love Tantrum?

Tantrum’s weekly afternoon workshops invite young people from diverse backgrounds with unique interests to come as they are. Some love drama and performance and want to pursue a professional career. Some consider themselves artistic in a different way while others don’t at all. Every young person stands to grow in confidence and creativity while having fun and making new friends at the same time!

As vehicles for following their own curiosity and ideas, participants will explore;

  • drama
  • performance
  • theatre-making
  • story-telling
  • improvisation
  • character development
  • writing
  • devising
  • design
  • plus much more!

Our experienced Workshop Facilitators are also practicing artists and respond to each groups’ interests and abilities to get the most out of each workshop. And with two facilitators in all workshops in Term 2*, we’re making sure that every young person receives additional support and encouragement.

With a focus on creativity, wellbeing and resilience, Tantrum’s afternoon workshops are designed to empower young people with the skills and confidence to solve problems, collaborate, trust in their strengths and make their voices heard.

* Where ratios are less than 1:4, there will be only one facilitator.

Tantrum is also a Registered Creative Kids Provider.
You can redeem your $100 Creative Kids voucher towards any of our workshops.

Tantrum Youth Arts is a child-safe environment.
