INTERNATIONAL YOUTH ARTS FESTIVAL 2021
JOIN US FOR 10 DAYS OF LIVE PERFORMANCE IN KINGSTON THIS SUMMER
This year’s festival will be slightly different as we adapt to the ever-changing environment of the pandemic. The shows will take place in the Rose Theatre Main House, Kingston Market Square, sites along the riverside and online.
Creative Youth aims to enable young people to realise their potential through the arts. We believe every young person has a right to access the arts and creativity and should be encouraged to take initiatives, risks and push boundaries in a safe, inclusive environment. Find out more about the charity here.
IYAF is made possible by support from Arts Council England, Kingston Council, Rose Theatre, Garfield Weston Foundation, Foyle Foundation and Kingston University.
We hope you enjoy the festival and are inspired by the talented artists who are adapting to these challenging times. If you would like to see more of the collaborations that are taking place through IYAF, please consider making a donation to the charity here.
Any contribution, however big or small, is hugely appreciated.
