The Paprika Festival is a youth-led performing arts festival celebrating young artists as they create original performances with the support of the entire artistic community. We generate opportunities for young artists to lead their own creative process with the support of their peers and professional mentors. We set the stage for young artists to have their voices heard in a setting that is supportive and also dependent on critical response. We ensure that young artists are well equipped to find employment in diverse cultural industries and to become our successors.
