Join the Team

Carclew is known nationally as a leader in youth arts and has been a huge part of many South Australians’ lives for more than 43 years. Carclew's vision is A CREATIVE STATE and its mission is to ignite the arts and kick start careers for young South Australians.

This approach to programming respects and engages with the very young as artists by delivering high quality arts experiences for children and young adults. We build their creative confidence as they grow older, and support the aspirations of young adults in the early years of their careers.

Carclew believes:

  • Children and young people are, innately, analysts, commentators, problem solvers, collaborators and critical thinkers and bring curiosity and imagination to their art making.
  • Young South Australians who do not currently have access to arts experiences are our priority.
  • Young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders have specific creative and cultural aspirations.
  • Young makers are leaders in experimentation, emerging art forms, creative innovation and the use of technology in art making.
  • The skills and tools for a successful arts career are complex and require ongoing development.
