Supported by

Department of Education


We invite students to experiment, express themselves and get excited by an Education and Creative Learning Program that mixes the playful with the profound and the purposeful. With the support of the Education Department and Fogarty Foundation, 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 collaborates with local, national and international artists in an Education Program that is innovative, exciting and unique. Our programs embed the arts across all areas of the Western Australian curriculum, ensuring the curriculum engages and has relevance for all students.

Creative Learning

Perth Festival’s Creative Learning program creates opportunities for students to work with the best artists and creators from around the world, building skills through meaningful collaborations. From Curated by Kids at Perth Writers Week to Who Run the World, a development program for young, female-identifying musicians, we place young people at the heart of the Festival. 

Seeds of Change

An ambitious school project for Boorna Waanginy 2019, seeing school children learn about and pledge to protect a species of flora & fauna from their local area. We’re asking students to contribute a seedpod lantern with a drawn image of their species that went on to form the magical installation at the conclusion of the event. 



Students attending a performance can also participate in free workshops. These outcomes-based programs deepen student learning across the curriculum and facilitate collaboration with artists and practitioners.
