The Street University Experience Comes to Sydney Opera House
Born and bred in the heart of Western Sydney, The Street University is a pioneering youth movement where young people aged 10 – 25 years old become the best version of themselves. For the first time ever at the Opera House, The Street University presents a selection of the finest up and coming Australian MCs, DJ’s, singers, dancers, poets and more! The Experience will run April 22 and 23.
For their debut at the Sydney Opera House, The Street University will feature a variety of young creatives including the award-winning dance troupe The Pioneers, the high-flying acrobatic stunt team, Dauntless Movement Crew (DMC), soulful vocalists Clarissa Mei & Montanah, Hip Hop lyricists Lxgcy, Vv and Element as well as the internationally acclaimed DJ Seb One + more!
The Street University Experience highlights how this truly unique approach to youth work changes the lives of young people. Having presented many shows and performances, it’s now time to bring their skills to one of Australia’s most iconic stages.
The Street University was established over 10 years ago in Liverpool NSW and has since spread through multiple locations throughout NSW, the ACT and QLD.
The Street Universities are dynamic spaces that embrace young people’s culture; their music, art, dance and stories and engages them in such a way that the help and support they need can be easily accessed. They are shaped and driven by the needs and activities of young people. Programs delivered are specifically designed for, and in consultation with, young people and operate in a safe, highly visible, youth-friendly environment.
This “non-traditional” setting provides interventions to the young people that deliver a significant increase in mental well-being. A wide range of arts, recreational activities and workshops are the hooks that provide a warm entry to The Street Universities’ range of services.
With an amazing display of dance & music performances, The Street University Experience demonstrates a cross section of the amazing creativity that buzzes in our spaces. It transports the audience to experience The Street University, if only for an hour.
