Kickstart Arts works with schools to co-design arts projects that enhance the school curriculum and engage young people in fun, challenging and relevant creative journeys.
Professional artists work across a range of disciplines such as video, electronic music, digital arts, sculpture, installations, visual and performing arts.
The work is often theme based and students explore socially relevant topics, working collaboratively towards public outcomes where the artworks are shared with the broader community.
The Remembering the Future Project
Students explored the past, the environment, waste, technology and philosophy.
A very successful project which encouraged students, staff and parents to explore the kinds of skills and values that would best equip them for an uncertain climate challenged future.
Young people made conducted research, thought experiments, made junk sculptures and short films and exhibited their work to the public to great acclaim.
The Happiness Project: Flinders Island
Kickstart Arts offered a chance for young people and parents to explore the world of feelings, psychology, ideas and philosophy by telling stories of the things they really value.
Young people were able to think about their lives in the new way by making films about their own relationships, place in the world and experience – the things that make meaning for them. These films were screened for the rest of the community to enjoy, the screenings are a really uplifting experience.
