A creative social enterprise that connects, showcases and develops the next generation of creative New Zealanders.

Youth Arts New Zealand


YANZ enables future opportunity by investing in the next generation of creative talent.

Creativity is the 3rd most important skill young people need to thrive in the fourth industrial revolution. Through recognising both the social and economic benefits of creativity, YANZ are able to create initiatives that holistically support and develop our young creatives.

 Youth Arts NZ connects, showcases and develops the next generation of creative youth!

What that means is that we connect young creatives with each other and opportunities to immerse themselves in creative practices. We provide young creatives with professional and innovative opportunities to showcase and create artistic work. Finally, we provide professional development opportunities with which young creatives can kickstart their creative careers!
