Creative Workshops for Young Carers

The Young Carers SA project brings local communities together and bridges the gap between young carers and their community through the arts as a tool to promote a creative approach to improving quality of life and positive opportunities and experiences for young carers.

Developed by Carclew and Carers SA and in July 2013, a pilot project was delivered in Port Lincoln and Renmark. Riverland Youth Theatre delivered circus and aerosol art workshops in Renmark while Carclew delivered aerosol art and digital Photography workshops at Port Lincoln.

The Port Lincoln workshops provided the opportunity for young carers in the Eyre Peninsula region to engage with multiple artforms and artistic experiences that are available to other children in their peer group but are not young carers; and opened them up to creative processes giving them a voice that may otherwise not be heard; decreased isolation felt by young carers.
