Rising Phoenix

“By supporting, encouraging and nurturing young people through arts experiences and engagement we can help them develop creatively, professionally, personally and build capacity to overcome any number of challenges.”


Rising Phoenix is a youth focused engagement and capacity building program. It has a growing track record of projects and initiatives for young and emerging artists and a commitment to act as an innovative, capacity and development platform for young people.

Formed in 2015 as Rising Phoenix Studios, this program officially became part of RANT Arts in late 2018. In 2019, Rising Phoenix continued to honour its commitment to community support, mentoring and professional development in the creative industries while also adopting a strong focus on the Tasmanian schools, at-risk children and gender policy. A number of key long-term partnerships have been established for this program with more currently in negotiation.
