International Performing Arts for Youth (IPAY) invites Philadelphia teens to apply for a position in CultureCrew. This virtual program provides paid positions for teens to come together and consult on IPAY's professional performance programming. CultureCrew members will convene for a Summer Session from July - August. The consultation CultureCrew provides will influence IPAY's Fall programming.
IPAY's programing is focused solely on performance for young people. Every year, IPAY puts out a call for internationally touring performances for young audiences. We then hold a selection panel made up of professional artists and programmers, and the highest-ranking shows are booked to perform around the world. CultureCrew was created in order to bring the voices of youth into our selection process. CultureCrew Members and Ambassadors will add their voice by reviewing a selection of the submitted works and giving critical feedback. Their responses will contribute to our annual Showcase held in Philadelphia. IPAY's CultureCrew will influence which live performances are put on stage for thousands of young people to see for years to come!
There will be additional opportunities for the IPAY CultureCrew to collaborate with other CultureCrews from New York, Ireland, Denmark, and Scotland.
2 CultureCrew Ambassadors will work with IPAY Staff to design the program for this summer. They will also with the Ambassadors from the international CultureCrews and facilitate exchange between groups.
