Lithgow City Council and the NSW government are proudly working together to present the Youth Opportunities program for our young people. Create Lithgow is an opportunity for local residents between the ages of 12 and 25 to explore the creative industries.

Mayor Ray Thompson is excited about the opportunity presented to our young people. “This community has its fair share of talented people. We’ve had many successful musicians and artists come out of Lithgow and these young people are getting a chance to fast track that success with access to industry professionals”.

A series of workshops that explore all aspects of the creative industries is being run over the course of this year. Young people will gain insight into building a career in the music and performing arts industry, navigating the world of legal issues, copyright, managing your own small business and harnessing all that creativity within you to pursue a career in the creative industries.

On June 26 a full day workshop will take place at Mitchell Conservatorium, 4 Wylde St Lithgow. The day will begin at 9:30am and run until 3pm. Young people will get to meet each other and meet some of the talented local and regional artists who will be mentoring them through these workshops. We will meet the production team and dream some big dreams together about the future workshops. This workshop will be an in depth introduction to the music world.

Young people will need to register to book their spot on Eventbrite

Bring your instruments, notepad and pens.
