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. We celebrate students as culture producers, as well as consumers, acknowledging and celebrating their creativity alongside the world’s best at Perth Festival. 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.
Ten curators get to nominate the authors or illustrators from the Writers Week program they’d most like to interview and then get to have their say in how their event will run. Curated by Kids will have a stage where kids and adults can catch the action of these literary sessions. Check it out HERE.
