International Youth Arts Festival 2019 – Applications Open

IYAF applications

Creative Youth is excited to announce that applications for Kingston’s 11th International Youth Arts Festival (IYAF) are now open.

As one of the world’s largest multi-arts festivals for performers aged under 27, IYAF brings some of the greatest young talent from around the world to Kingston for 10 days of inventive, inspiring and groundbreaking theatre, music and dance. The 11th Festival will run from 5 – 14 July 2019 at venues across Kingston including performances held at Kingston’s Rose Theatre, Arthur Cotterell Theatre and a free outdoor stage with live music at the historic Market Place.

IYAF has a reputation for its welcoming atmosphere and supportive audiences. It provides a platform for professional companies or artists who are touring, or testing something new, and an exciting experience for festival first-timers looking for an opportunity to show what they can do.

The full Festival programme will be announced in May.
