Godinymayin Yijard Rivers Arts & Culture Centre will host a weekly youth performance class under world-renowned performer and Katherine resident Kamahi Djordan King.
Starting next week, the 'performance hub' aims to fill a void for honing young creative talents in a town where sport tends to dominate the spotlight.
From 5-7pm each Thursday night, 12-25 year-old artists are invited to practice and collaborate together under Mr King's guidance.
While sessions will have loose themes such as 'poetry into song', Mr King is adamant the sessions aren't a class.
Rather, they're about the chance to 'hone each individual talent in a safe space where they can feel comfortable pushing their boundaries'.
"It's not a class in the sense of okay this is what we're going this week and attendance is required," Mr King said.
"It's a place for them to still have their own thing going on, but to hone and share it with other like-minded young people and access my guidance as well.
"When they get on stage I'll still say look this can improve in these ways, but it'll be constructive so they can get confidence from improving.
"I've asked the schools to only send me people who are genuinely interested, because this space is about them developing that confidence to stand up and perform.
"There can't be any teasing or laughing, I won't allow it because it has to be a safe, supportive space," he said.
Mr King is perhaps best-known by his cabaret alter-ego Constantina Bush, a female character from the bush with a big voice and personality to match.
Yet his successes as an artist range far wider from Indigenous Hip Hop Projects in Halls Creek, all the way up to performing his play 'The Shadow King' at London's renowned Barbican Theatre on the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death.
He is personally driven to complete the program because he himself was forced to leave the Katherine Region in search of spaces to fulfil his creativity in.
"This town is dominated by sport which is fine, but we need to provide somewhere for the kids who just aren't into that as well," he said.
Promising young Katherine musical talent Tom Fawkner is now roughly the same age as when King left to pursue his dreams.
Tom is now a music producer publishing his own music under the moniker 'Ponzi'.
Having lived in Katherine since he was ten, Tom says he's been blessed to have resources around him but the performance hub provides a chance for him to fix one small issue.
"It's just that thing for me about getting up and singing in front of people," he said.
"I know it's just something I have to get over if I'm going to start playing gigs and stuff.
"But I do find it hard, so I'm coming to this new performance hub with the goal of gaining some confidence around it.
"I used to play team sports because that's just what young boys do but I realised it wasn't for me after a while.
"I've been making music for a while now, but I am aware I was blessed in terms of having the resources around me and my parents supported me in getting into it.
"For a lot of other people they might not have that right environment and there really isn't anything in the town like this at the moment.
"The town is sport-orientated which is all good, but we shouldn't be standing in the way of creative young people by not having anywhere for them to go," Tom said.
