Adelaide Festival is dedicated to giving every young person in South Australia the opportunity to experience international art, not just as audience members but as active participants and artists.

Create4Adelaide is a year-long, participatory project created by, with and for young people, inviting them to respond creatively to climate change. With engagement and workshops in every art form across 2023, this project culminates in an exhibition of works responding to three climate priorities: extinction of animals and plants, extreme weather events, such as floods and bushfires, and pollution of our air and waterways.
There are lots of ways that schools and young people can participate in Create4Adelaide during the 2024 Adelaide Festival and in the lead-up to the event:

Every young person should feel that the arts is something open to them, that every art venue and cultural institution belongs to them. Experiencing world-class performances and exhibitions provides an opportunity for students and teachers to share creative conversations and critical debates on important global issues. In addition, it is important for young people to express themselves creatively and work with artists who can support them. This can have a lasting impact on how they engage with their communities. In the 2024 Festival, long-term projects, such as Floods of Fire and Create4Adelaide, provide an important model for new ways to work with young people.
Adelaide Festival will provide ongoing avenues for young people to have their voices heard and contribute their creative ideas.
