About Transistor Youth Arts

Transistor Youth Arts is a by Youth Theatre and Film initiative created by Tasmanian Production Company Mast Films at the beginning of 2015. Last year the program engaged with 70 children producing 6 short films and 5 original short plays. This year over 150 young people took part in the various workshops and initiatives producing 11 Short Films and a 5-part web series. Besides being broadcast on YouTube in 2016 Transistor Youth Arts films were screened at The Tasmanian Breath of Fresh Air Festival in Launceston, REMADE 2016, Light Up the Lanes in Hobart and 'Black Hills High' screened at  ‘Not THAT Place: Art versus Stigma’ an exhibition at the University of Melbourne through The Australian Research Council.

The initiative is committed to providing access to professional training and equipment for all young Tasmanians and by working with Local Government Transistor Youth Arts is able to provide subsidised and/or free programs so that those facing access and equity issues are able to participate.
