About Us


Western Edge Youth Arts (WEYA) is a registered charity that works with culturally and linguistically diverse as well as economically disadvantaged communities to create unique arts and arts education experiences for young people under twenty-six. WEYA's work is founded on long-term relationships with participants, a strong commitment to the professional development of young artists and a dedication to the production of excellent, culturally diverse art with an authentic youth voice.

WEYA works in both school and community contexts, and is dedicated to fostering social justice, self-empowerment and cross-cultural understanding among all young people. Our commitment to high artistic standards is complemented by sophisticated mechanisms for addressing diversity, access and the empowerment of young people.

WEYA's Education program is highly respected within National and International education communities for its leadership in arts in education pedagogy.

Today, WEYA works with more than 600 young people each year to produce a diverse program of performance, film, creative writing and research that attract large community as well as mainstream arts audiences.
