For Schools / History

Over 10 years Carclew offered support to over 100 South Australian companies and independent performance artists through its Playfull – Live Performance and Workshops for Schools program. Through an online resource and the annual Performance Expo teachers had access to a broad range of quality-accredited performances, suited to all ages from CPC–Year 12.

In September 2010, Carclew presented its final Playfull Expo at the Forge Theatre at Marryatville High School.

Feedback, through online surveys and consultation with teachers, artists and quality-accreditation panel members confirmed that Playfull has been much loved and valued but to continue it without funding support would compromise its integrity.

The good news is that while Playfull will not continue as a program Carclew is committed to supporting South Australian teachers and artists work together to ensure students have access to high quality, relevant and entertaining arts experiences.
