Fostering creativity in schools is the focus of a new $8 million program funded by the McGowan Government. Delivering on a 2021 State Election commitment, the Creative Learning Program comprises two key initiatives - Creative Learning Partnerships and Creativity for Schools. The focus of these grants will be on enriched learning by embedding creativity across the curriculum, and beyond.
The two program categories, Collaboration and Residency, will support arts access, participation and overall engagement for students (K to 12) and teachers to engage in transformative creative learning experiences.
The inaugural Creative Learning Partnerships grant round opened today. Further information on the program, including guidelines, application questions and eligibility requirements, is available now on the Department of Local Government. Sport and Cultural Industries website - https://www.dlgsc.wa.gov.au/creative-learning Applications close at 4.00pm on 27th October 2022.
Creativity for Schools will open early in 2023.
