We invite students to experiment, express themselves and get excited by an Education Program that mixes the playful with the profound and the purposeful. With the support of the Education Department, we create a curriculum-linked and outcomes-based program of discounted performances, free workshops, masterclasses, mentorships and hands-on activities that have learning at their heart.
Perth Festival worked with secondary students in years 9, 10, 11 or 12 to make short documentary films that respond to ‘water that is important to you’. Water Features were made by the students and a professional crew with the generous support of Screenwest. You can watch and read about the documentaries here.
