The Holiday Break Program is an Office for Regional Youth program designed to provide regional young people (12–24 years old) with access to recreational and social activities that are responsive, free, and local, so their creativity, imagination, self-confidence, and self-efficacy is enhanced, as well as their physical, social, cognitive and emotional development skills.
Create NSW is developing strategic targeted initiatives to respond to gaps and opportunities for children and young people participating in arts, screen and culture in regional NSW.
