Red Bird is a Youth Arts organisation for 15-24 year olds. Red Bird is a group of likeminded young people from different backgrounds who come together to collaborate on engaging and challenging art projects.
The participants take ownership of projects and are involved in decision making from idea stage to completion of a project. The group has collaborated with professional artists on visual art, film, architecture and performance projects. The group also engage with other aspects of the arts such as administration, curation, and event organisation.
Red Bird is an ideal outside-of-school pursuit for students interested in self-led art projects, writing, music and other artforms.
