For more than 30 years, the Stage Light crew have been supporting Performing Arts in Schools & Colleges. Brian Walsh, Senior Production Designer, explains how his company is helping young people shine.
Involvement in performing arts promotes self-confidence, communication, creativity and team skills, as well as emotional wellbeing. Student participation is linked to positive academic, social and emotional outcomes later in life.
So, we take our job of creating wonderful stage experiences very seriously. We care deeply about igniting a love of performance in young people.
The devastating impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on the performing arts sector, and on the mental health of individuals, makes it more important than ever to get it right now we are returning to live performances.
To give back to the community, each year the Stage Light crew collect, assess and repair used stage lighting & audio equipment, before donating them to low SES schools and fire/flood effected venues throughout NSW.
If your performance space has lost, damaged, unsafe or no lighting and sound equipment, reach out to Stage Light.
The Stage Light crew also undertake annual volunteering at the REELise Film Festival - an initiative to support youth mental health.
