Tantrum Outpost is our exciting new initiative to establish ongoing creative workshop programs for young people in regional areas led by regional artists, through training and support from Tantrum.
In partnership with Arts Upper Hunter, the first Tantrum Outpost will commence in Dungog in 2021. This will consist of two stages: creative residency / community consultation in April, and a weekly Drama + Performance Workshop program for young people throughout Terms 2, 3 and 4. Both these stages are being led by Tantrum artist Amy Morris and supported by regional early-career artist Meg O’Hara.
Weekly Drama + Performance Workshops
Tantrum is running a weekly Drama + Performance Workshop program in Dungog for teenagers aged between 13 and 17.
In Term 2 2021, these workshops will take place at Dungog High School during school hours.
Who: Dungog High School students. No experience required!
When: Weekly workshops on Thursdays during school sport from 29 April – 24 June 2021
Where: Dungog High School
Stay tuned for specific details around the program in Terms 3 and 4 2021.
In general, Tantrum’s weekly 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;
- character development
- plus much more!
With a focus on creativity, wellbeing and resilience, Tantrum’s weekly 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.
Dungog High School students should contact their school administrator
to register for the weekly workshop program in Term 2.
