The Community Arts and Wellbeing Program offers services to community organisations and schools, with a focus on creative activities to improve health and wellbeing.
The program offers weekly, monthly and one-off workshops in drama, music and visual art, run by Artist Tutors who are all current practising artists in the community. Through various arts activities, the program builds confidence, creative thinking, team skills and a sense of community.
The Creative Learning Program is specifically offered to primary and secondary schools, to promote healthy life choices through fun, creative activities. These programs involve a performance by the Creative Learning team, followed by a facilitated session of questions and activities.
The Community Arts and Wellbeing Team welcome requests and is able to tailor workshops and performances to suit the specific needs of an organisation.
