Have you heard about “Arts Umbrella”? This is a project that has been made possible through funding from the City of Canterbury local grants.

Currently working out of the amphitheatre at Wiley Park, Horizon Theatre Company Ltd was established with the clear aim of developing a world-class repertory theatre company in Sydney’s west and beyond. We are dedicated to enhancing artistic, cultural and economic opportunities for a diverse background of marginalised young people and theatre practitioners whilst developing participation and a large audience. Horizon is a pioneer in arts-based strategies and aims to continue to provide regular arts-based and innovative intervention programs to equip young participants with alternative methods for early intervention and crime prevention. Finally, Horizon is a drop-in facility helping improve the self-esteem, communication, teamwork skills and creativity of our community.

The ARTS UMBRELLA project has provided access to creative and recreational arts based school holiday activities for young people living in the Canterbury local government area. It has been keeping them out of the sun and putting them into the fun. The project acknowledges the culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds of participants. Over the course of the school holidays, Horizon provided free tickets to performances. Including tickets for our performances of “You Can’t Steal Christmas” on the 20th and 21st of December.

Additionally, the Theatre will has been providing free arts based workshops in the heat of the day. Participants were matched to activities based on their individual talents, abilities and inclinations.
