For 50 years, Carclew has engaged with children and young people in all aspects of art and creative practice. Through our programs, we have kick-started generations of art lovers and careers for countless emerging artists who have gone on to shine on the national and international stage. Carclew provides vital education and career pathways for South Australia’s collective creative potential. We are committed to continuing and strengthening our impact in the classroom, through Carclew in Schools. We engage professional artists - experts in ideation, making and reflection, who’s teaching makes a pathway for young people to envision what they can do and who they can be. We bring teachers together for professional learning experiences that make space for discovery and conversation, stimulate teaching practices, and build community. Our approach creates lifelong impact on individuals and South Australia’s collective creative potential.
Carclew in Schools is brought to you through our partnership with the Department for Education. It offers year-round menu of arts programs for Department for Education primary schools, young people, and teachers with a focus on Aboriginal arts, histories and cultures, teacher professional learning, and cross-curriculum application. Our programs have a range of engagement durations from one-day to multi-term, responding to demand and capacity within schools.
Carclew prioritises access and equity. We use an expression of interest application process to help us engage with a variety of schools across South Australia.
