Brisbane Writers Festival is once again appointing Youth Ambassadors to help curate, champion, and host the festival’s youth programs. Program Manager Ella Peile is seeking applications from young Queenslanders passionate about reading, writing, and storytelling. “I want to see young people involved in BWF not just as consumers of content but as active creators,” Ella said. “I’m really excited to see what big topics the Youth Ambassadors see as important and the fun ideas they bring to BWF 2022.”
The Youth Ambassador program started in 2018 with a focus on Love YA, and has expanded to encompass many events including a presence in the main BWF festival. The program provides an opportunity for passionate readers aged 14–24 to become involved in the Brisbane writing community and build their skills with an arts organisation.
Applications for Youth Ambassador positions closes on 22 September 2021. Find out more about how to become a youth ambassador.
