Our Emerging Artists Development Program [EADP] works with referees from the Special Circumstances Courts in Brisbane and has been running on “less than average” funds for years now. Begun in 2005 it has provided a more than average kick start to some young artists, with some graduates finding work as artists and designers and others selling their art work to buyers in Australia and overseas. The program is mentor and relationship based and aims for the participants to produce a body of art work for a “Favella” exhibition and to expand their arts skills into canvas work, screen printing and drawing.
Personal growth and development is part of Jugglers commitment to these young men and our networking with the Special Circumstances Court and other youth agencies builds on our common values.
This is a unique program that has given leadership in the arts and social services sectors in Brisbane and plays a significant part in the development of young men, the growth of emerging artists and a positive application of the rule of law through the judicial system.
