About SHYACSHYAC is a non-profit, volunteer driven community organisation based in the Southern Highlands of NSW, Australia. We are dedicated to providing a caring and supportive environment for children and young people to participate in the arts.
To encourage, support and promote Youth Arts and Youth Cultural Development in the Southern Highlands of NSW and surrounding regional areas.
SHYAC's patron is Australian entertainer David Campbell. A multi-platinum selling recording artist, Campbell has featured on TV, starred in theatre and cabaret, recorded four Top Ten albums, and sold out concert tours from coast to coast. He has a unique legacy as not just one of Australia's leading musical theatre stars, but also one of the few local performers to have achieved similar success in New York.
