About the Festival

The Arts Learning Festival is a biennial event for students, teachers, school leaders, families and the wider community that explores the importance of arts in education, presented by Independent Schools Victoria.

Our inaugural festival was in May 2017, and we invited students from all school sectors and the wider community to come along and get involved, exploring our theme of unlimited imagination.

Through a series of interactive projects, workshops, performances and discussions, we triggered creative thinking and started conversations about different viewpoints. We showed how art crosses barriers and how it connects us to each other, to ourselves, and to cultures both familiar and unfamiliar.

We’ll see you again in 2019.

Check in with us for updates.

The Arts Learning Festival acknowledges and respects the traditional custodians of the land on which it is based, the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, and pays respect to Elders past and present.
