Zone2 engaged young people from culturally diverse and low socio-economic backgrounds in Melbourne’s northern suburbs. Contemporary, cultural, street and classical art forms were included in the tutorials. Young people were supported to develop their creative skills and self-confidence. From the Zone2 tutorials, young people were connected to performing opportunities and were linked into further education, training and employment. POLYGLOT THEATRE Polyglot North Frankston legacy project: Outer Bounds 2016 and Hear Me Roar 2017 Polyglot continued its work in Frankston North with students from Mahogany Rise Primary School and Monterey Secondary College. The Outer Bounds Project (2016) and the Hear Me Roar project (2017) are designed to build upon an existing four-year relationship with the schools. Students from years 5, 6, 7 and 8 are involved in the projects and continue to be supported to have a voice, and to make their own art and performances to be presented to their community. Important themes relating to nature and gender are explored over the two years. Through the process, young people build their confidence and resilience – helping them make the transition to secondary school.
