A regional Artists in Schools initiative
Cargo was a Carclew’s Artists In Schools residency program specifically for schools and communities in Roxby Downs, Whyalla, Port Augusta and Port Pirie. Cargo was generously supported by BHP Billiton.
Since its inception in 2007 through to 2011, Cargo delivered one-week workshops, annually in each of the four communities. Over four years Cargo workshops reached over 25 schools and offered workshop experiences to over 2,000 primary and secondary students.
Through Cargo, Carclew broadened the arts experiences of middle year students through engagement with professional artists, across a range of quality art forms. Priority was given to disadvantaged schools.
Cargo utilises experienced and emerging artists who aim to achieve fresh approaches to the arts while building on existing arts experiences available in schools and local communities.
Carclew welcomes input from teachers and school communities in program planning.
