Session Announcement: ‘Ready For This’ Live Q&A

Wednesday 10 February 2016

The Australian Children’s Television Foundation (ACTF) presents a behind-the-scenes look at Ready For This:

On paper, Ready for This may seem like your average teen drama, with its relatable storylines of identity, friendship, coming-of-age adventure, peer-group pressure, bullying, rebellion and, of course, raging hormones.

But it’s the program’s contemporary, integrated approach to multiculturalism that makes this award-winning ABC3 series truly unique – it presents Indigenous Australian kids as part of the fabric of mainstream television and celebrates a shared humanity, instead of focusing on ‘difference’.

Behind the scenes, Ready for This is supporting an emerging mob of young Australian talent.

Produced by the teams behind Dance Academy (Werner Film Productions) and Redfern Now (Blackfella Films), this aspirational thirteen-part series highlights the challenges and adventures of six elite teens brought together in a new city in pursuit of their dreams.

Join the ACTF for a live Q&A discussion with the cast and creative team from one of Australia’s ground-breaking new teen dramas.
