What is the Cultch’s Youth Panel?
Imagine having access to one of Canada’s premiere performing arts venues to create the arts festival of your dreams. Imagine working collaboratively with a group of like-minded young people to make that dream a reality. Imagine learning from the city’s top artists and administrators to make your festival the best it could possibly be. At the Cultch's Youth Panel, we don't have to imagine - we do it every year.

Who is the Cultch’s Youth Panel?
The Youth Panel is a group of approximately 15 young people aged 13-26 from all over the Lower Mainland with a passion for the performing arts. They are talented, energized, and engaged. They are fun-loving, hilarious, and more than a little bit nuts. They are curious, committed, and intelligent. You and your friends are welcome to join.

Why join? Because it's fun. Because it's challenging. Because you will make new friends, learn a ton of new skills, definitely laugh and maybe cry. Because you can work harder than you ever have before, and it'll feel worth it.

Anyone and everyone is welcome to join, it doesn’t matter if you consider yourself an artist or not. All you need is a passion for the arts, and a desire to learn and collaborate. It is 100% free.

When and Where:
You can join anytime! We meet every Monday starting in October from 6-8pm in The Cultch’s administrative offices (3rd floor), located at 1895 Venables St (on the corner of Venables and Victoria). Here is a map.
