IYAF 2018 is Open for Applications

We’re pleased to announce that applications for Kingston’s 10th International Youth Arts Festival (IYAF) are now open.

As one of the world’s largest multi-arts festivals showcasing the talents of creative young people, IYAF is place to be if you’re 26 and under, and want to participate in a friendly, fringe-style festival.

 And if you’re over 27 but your work is designed for young audiences, we’d love to hear from you too.

IYAF has a reputation for its welcoming atmosphere and supportive audiences. It’s a great opportunity for professional companies or artists who are touring, or testing something new, and an exciting experience for festival first-timers looking for a platform to show what they can do.

The International Youth Arts Festival does not charge venue hire fees, making IYAF an excellent environment to try something completely different. We accept applications from all countries.

The final deadline for applications is 26th January 2018, but successful applicants who submit their forms by 20th December 2017 will be given a £50 discount on the registration fee.

The 10th anniversary festival will be a special celebration of creative talent and not one you’d want to miss.
