OUR PROGRAM VISION

Corrugated Iron’s program is designed to meet a wide brief for young creatives across urban, regional and remote settings in the Northern Territory.

 

We provide opportunities for young people as creator, participant, and audience member, as well as pathways to shape organisational development, and sector leadership. 

 

Our annual artistic program collaborates hand-in-hand with children, young people, emerging and early career artists who between them, demand a variety of outcomes relevant to their own unique context.

 

We ensure that there is a mix of self-produced outcomes and commissioned or contracted performance making opportunities. 

Young creatives are making work now, and are agents of artistic innovation, rather than merely symbols of the future. Corrugated Iron is for NOW. 

IGNITING CREATIVITY 

Children, young people, emerging and early career artists take their place as the NOW generation of creative leaders, movers, makers, and shakers. Corrugated Iron provides a solid foundation for mentoring, training, and skills development alongside a platform for public performances and outcomes.

CONNECTING COMMUNITIES

Our Creative Schools & Communities program with urban, regional, and remote communities across the Northern Territory ensures that our people and programs are reflective of the diverse communities in which we work and are designed based on consultation and the social justice principles of access, equity and participation. 

 

We strive to ensure that barriers to participation are removed for some of Australia's most disadvantaged and isolated communities to access performing arts and creative arts opportunities. 

EXPLORING NEW TERRITORY 

As we intrepidly focus on artistic partnerships, collaborations, and experimentation we will build on not only the capacity of children, young people, emerging and early career artists but also the Northern Territory’s arts and cultural ecology.

 

We will enjoy promoting both Corrugated Iron and the Northern Territory as an exciting place to learn, make new friends, and forge creative connections that stimulate new work.
