Coinciding with National Youth Week, The Smart ARTS Festival commences on April 8, bringing with it opportunity for dozens of Sydney's talented young artists to showcase their ideas.

Founded in 2001, the festival is a collaboration of ideas and community, expressed through an array of mediums such as painting, sculpture, printmaking and photography. Running throughout April, the festival will include a variety of events such as career forums, talks, workshops and exhibitions.

The festival will kick off with a launch party on April 8 at the Pine Street Creative Arts Centre — a night of live art exhibitions, projections, origami, interactive art and spoken word performances.

Consider yourself artistically challenged? Not to worry, the program is not just for artists — it's an opportunity to learn more about art and celebrate the people who are at the forefront of our burgeoning art scene. With so many events to try out, you may even find your inner Kahlo or Picasso.

Running from the April 8-17, the Smart ARTS festival will be held in different locations around Sydney. After April 17, the Smart ARTS exhibition and Artefiction will continue until April 28 at the Pine Street Creative Arts Centre. All events are free for people aged 15-26, but some will require bookings.
