YGF is a special project of the award winning Eastside Young Leaders’ Academy
The aim is to use the arts – specifically performance – to give Young Leaders the opportunity to access the transformative power of mythological encounter.
Young Leaders will participate in a series of workshops, led by creative specialists, to enable research into their own cultural mythological heritage. The project’s centrepiece production will be at the Greenwich Theatre on 1st March 2018, at which Young Leaders will stage their own dynamic representation of the hero’s and heroine’s journey.
Our Young Leaders were born into communities steeped in allegorical narrative and ritual. YGF is an opportunity to explore and interpret their lives through mythological narrative and go on to showcase their stories through dance, drama, comedy, poetry, and prose.
Guests in attendance will include prominent names from the arts, politics, business and education as well as proud parents. The event promises to be a night to remember.
