This program partners schools and creatives to embed creativity into students' learning and understanding across curriculum areas.
The Creativity for Schools Program offers funding support to connect Western Australian creatives with schools.
Creativity for Schools supports activities using arts-based practice to engage students in their learning beyond arts curriculum areas. The two program categories, Collaboration and Residency, will support access, participation and overall engagement
for students (K to 12) in transformative creative learning experiences. They will also develop educators to use creative pedagogy across curriculum areas and beyond.
