Check out the photos from the end of residency showing of the Bilingual Kids’ Arts Lab, that we co-produced in early October 2019 with Arab Theatre Studio. Five of Western Sydney’s most exciting artists, Alissar Chidiac (creative producer), Maissa Alameddine, Marian Abboud, Eddie Abd, Yamane Fayed and Bakri Mahmoud, worked with young people from Arabic speaking backgrounds during the October school holidays to experiment with new media and learn skills and language from each other.
Throughout 2019, we’re supporting a number of diverse projects from young people and emerging practitioners as part of the Young Residents Program. All artists have strong voices and sharp insights into contemporary practice and cultural representation, and their collective talents include literature, performance, live art, film and community practice. The Bilingual Kids’ Arts Lab is part of the Young Residents Program.
Western Sydney University is the Young Residents Program founding partner. The program is made possible through the generous support of the Crown Resorts Foundation and Packer Family Foundation.
