Arts & Education

For almost 50 years, Regional Arts Victoria has been the leader in providing workshops, performances and arts experiences for children and young people across Victoria. Each year we tour a range of projects throughout regional and metropolitan Victoria, spanning Mallacoota to Murrayville and Heywood to Corryong.

The Arts & Education program aims to inspire young people and develop their creativity, encouraging them to find pathways to become lifelong participants in the arts. The program is designed to engage, educate and delight students from foundation to VCE through a range of creative approaches. With a selection of high quality, immersive arts experience, we pride ourselves on providing relevant and exciting activities for children and young people that is complementary to the Victorian Curriculum.

We present performances and workshops across all art forms, including Music, Visual arts, Drama, Dance, Media.
