About IMPACT Ensemble

 Empire Youth Arts 2017 IMPACT Ensembles


The Empire Youth Arts IMPACT Ensemble is an elite performance program for young artists who wish to further their skills in the theatre industry. Now in its seventh year, the IMPACT Ensemble has a long history of empowering participants in professional practice with industry artists and supporting pathways into tertiary or creative opportunities. Last year, through the generous support of the Sidney Myer Fund, Empire Youth Arts expanded the program to include a brand new Junior Ensemble for young creatives aged 10 to 13 years old. 

 Applications for both the Senior and Junior IMPACT Ensembles are now open - closes 19/03/2018
