In 2019, Carclew assembled a team of 10 young arts-munchers, aged 12-15, for the ground breaking child-directed arts funding project, Carclew Futures.
The project resulted in two recipients being selected to receive a share of $10,000 funding...
Port Lincoln's 14-year-old Charlee Watt, received $5,000 to create a large portable backdrop for live youth events and indigenous gatherings. Read more here.
Also receiving $5,000 in funding was Elizabeth Vale visual artist, Chad Spencer, who will produce a hayshed mural along the Mt Compass to Goolwa Road - the first of an ‘I-spy-with-my-little-eye' art-trail across a series of haysheds. Read more here.
You can listen to a radio interview with Charlee on ABC Eyre Pennisula here (ffwd to the 44:30 mark)
During this school term, a team of 12-15 year olds have been critically thinking about the responsibility of distributing $10,000 of arts funding and they have designed a framework and process to make this happen.
Team members bring artistically varied passions, socially diverse considerations, and come from areas far and wide. Carclew has been working alongside them to investigate how art is made; how creative ideas are formed; the process of turning a concept into an outcome; how much ‘art’ costs to make and what it takes to get funding.
The Carclew Futures project is a partnership between Carclew Funding Programs and the Commissioner for Children & Young People. The children who make up the Carclew Futures team have been led by Peer Facilitator, Audrey Mason-Hyde, and Lead Facilitator, Paul Mayers.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?
Carclew is located on the corner of Jeffcott Street and Strangways Terrace, North Adelaide. There is one clearly marked accessible car park in the Carclew grounds with direct access to the pathway around the grounds to one side. Taxi drop off can be organised at the rear entrance and reception can call for a taxi on behalf of attendees.
There is limited on-site parking on the grounds of Carclew House which is reserved for staff. However, there is ample free on-street parking on the streets surrounding Carclew on Jeffcott Street and Strangways Terrace. There are pathways surrounding the three external sides of Carclew House with pavers on Strangways Terrace and sealed on Jeffcott Street.
