The Western Riverina is set to be home to a performing arts institute, with plans for the Roxy Community Theatre in Leeton to be redeveloped.

The Roxy Institute of Performing Arts (RIPA) will train young people in the Riverina who want to pursue a career in the industry, creating an opportunity for people to do so regionally.

The program will involve mentors and industry experts training students with skills that will allow them to tell their stories and develop pathways to employment in the arts.
