Who We Are
Committed to Enriching the Lives of Youth
Children have so much to offer to the world - we believe in the power that they hold, and know that they will mould future generations to come. At Artzmartz Young People's Theatre, we are here to give them the support they need in order to shape them into leaders of the future.
We have all been hit hard by the isolation and fear a global pandemic brings, and none more so than our youth.
Performing Arts has proven health and mental health benefits ... none more so than the healing properties of connection to others and a sense of belonging.
Artzmartz programs and leadership initiatives nurture our youth and help them develop the skills they will carry throughout their lives.
Join us, or donate to provide scholarship places for young people today, and see how you can make an impact!
Smart Communities is committed to the safety & Wellbeing of all children and young people.
Smart Communities & Artzmartz Young People's Theatre is committed to providing a child safe environment where children and young people are safe and feel safe, are authentically included, represented and their voices are heard.
