Each term in 2024 has a different focus. Sign up for one term or as many terms as you like.
Term 1: Scriptwriting Shorts
How do you turn your ideas into a usable script? Nine sessions in Term 1 will get you writing your own short play or film script with facilitator Alysha Herrmann. We’ll talk about script conventions (the rules you can break!), pathways to get your script made, and give you supported writing and feedback time.
Term 2: Visual Art Experiments
Term 2 of Online Creative Club is all about visual art experiments. Using whatever materials you have to hand, wherever you are, to express yourself and your ideas. Over nine sessions we will experiment with materials and prompts to create multiple artworks. We’ll then turn our experiments into an online exhibition for SALA (the South Australian Living Artists Festival).
Term 3: Poetry and Performance
Calling writers, performers and anyone with something to say! This term we will be creating short spoken word pieces to perform and present in-person and online. Learn slam poetry and monologue techniques to get your point across and share it with the world. Selected pieces will be recorded and presented on the RYT TikTok account and may be invited to perform at RYT in-person events in 2024 or 2025.
Term 4: Community Interventions
Let’s scheme some public art ideas for 2025 and beyond. This term of nine workshops will explore arts projects as creative resistance and community connection. We will look at examples of community intervention art projects and artists from around Australia and the world, and then develop our own ideas to delight and provoke our local places.
