The Future gives young women of colour an opportunity to develop creative and professional skills and grow a network of like-minded peers and mentors.

The program will also provide networking opportunities. Participants will meet mentors, build their networks and obtain practical skills and knowledge that will help them to become confident, engaged young leaders in the arts.
