“It is invaluable to me to have a space to act as a professional and be afforded an opportunity to still be developing – this is my absolute favourite environment to be and learn in.”

AYO Momentum Ensemble Musician

AYO plays a pivotal role in helping young people imagine their creative futures: what will it mean to be an artist in 30 or 40 years? What skills and mindsets will our young people need to not only flourish professionally but also make a positive contribution?

By engaging world-leading, innovative artists and challenging our participants to push boundaries and step out of their comfort zones, we strive to develop the future leaders of our arts ecology.

AYO is proud to regularly commission Australian composers and undertakes community engagement projects far and wide to ensure we make music for everyone.

Our donors have the power to be a voice in our future. Play your part as we commission new music, expand on professional pathways for our musicians, and develop Australia’s future cultural leaders.
