The curtain has come down on an amazing five days of our first Arts Learning Festival.
To the estimated thousands of students, teachers, families and community members who took part, we say thank you for making the festival such a great success.
The Arts Learning Festival was all about celebrating the arts in education, and over the five days of the festival, the celebration took place in Melbourne’s arts precinct and at Birrarung Marr, which together hosted more than 30 events.
The festival was presented by Independent Schools Victoria, but the invitation went out to all students in all schools. We were delighted that the festival was embraced by schools across Victoria, with the three education sectors involved.
The Arts Learning Festival was also supported by Melbourne’s leading cultural institutions, and we also received strong backing from the Victorian Government and the Victorian Opposition.
Our festival theme was unlimited imagination, and every event took us to new, exciting places.
We’ll see you again in 2019.
