Keep up to date with all of the latest digital learning releases from The Arts Unit

The Connections Program

The Connections Program provides a range of inclusive teaching, learning and performance opportunities in dance, visual arts, music and drama.  

Throughout the year we will be offering arts projects and programs that invite students and their teachers to create their own works based on a central theme. Schools and students will then be invited to showcase their work in Term 3.

The 2020 theme is ‘Found Objects’.

This program is open to all students with disability and their teachers.

To keep up to date with what is on offer in 2020 please complete the registration form on The Arts Unit website.
