Councillor Don Palmer Providing Local Leadership & Working for You

Yes Urban Myth have settled into their new home, at the Goodwood Institute building on Goodwood Road. A home that is a far cry from their old home in one of the cottages on the Village Green in Edmund Street, Unley.

Urban Myth Theatre Company of South Australia is an internationally award winning youth arts organisation. Established in 1981, the company has nurtured the talents and leadership skills of over 10,000 young people in Adelaide, Rural South Australia and Internationally.

Their  home at the Goodwood Institute  provides these young participants, professional practitioners and visitors a Creative Hub to explore and deliver their work. With its 212-seat theatre, 2 studios, music bar and gallery, the Goodwood is a home for the arts that South Australia can be proud.Urban Myth Theatre Company at the Goodwood Institute is more than a theatre company, it’s an international home of the performing arts.

As their artistic director Glenn Hayden told me yesteraday as he ushered me around the facility Urban Myth now can be seen as the premier Youth Arts facility, not a “cottage” industry.

I reckon we will see this new resident of Goodwood Road particpate in making Goodwood Road the centre of performing excellence.
