Open Access Youth Art Studio

Open Access Youth Arts Studio has been helping At Risk young people aged between 15 and 25 in Albany since 2006.

The studio uses the arts as an expressive medium for young people with issues ranging from mental illness and social problems, to homelessness. The studio works with qualified Youth Workers that engage with young people and help connect them to community services and help their overall wellbeing.
