Project details

Who will benefit from this project?

Budget

$90,000.00

How will the funding be spent?

The funding will be spent on wages, equipment and a vehicle. Carclew will pay two professional artists for 32 days (across 16 weekends) to deliver a wide range of visual arts activities. We will purchase and customise a transit van to transport artists, art supplies, marquees and temporary workspaces. The funding will also cover on-road expenses, accommodation and per diems for the artists.

How will the project be delivered?

Four towns in the Murray Mallee & Limestone Coast will each receive 8 Art Van visits. Each weekend trip will visit 2 towns each receiving a Saturday or Sunday workshop program. Artists will utilise the van & additional structures to set up a making space to deliver free arts activities for children aged 5-12, in partnership with identified local artists. Parents & caregivers will be encouraged to participate with their children, building relationships & stimulating creative play within families.

How many people will directly benefit from this project?

1200

How will you measure the impact of this project?

Results Based Accountability evaluation is currently being rolled out across all of Carclew's programs, and a detailed plan will be developed to evaluate the Art Van program. Our measurement and evaluation will utilise attendance reports, self-reported feedback, observation and simple surveys to measure quantitative (how much we did) and qualitative (how well we did it and whether the participants are better off) outcomes continually throughout program delivery.

How will the project fit this year's theme of ‘Connect, Grow, Build, Belong’?

Carclew has extensive experience using arts participation to build confidence, resilience and a sense of wellbeing in children and young people. The Art Van will enable us to extend our work into regional communities. In addition to providing regular, free access to a broad variety of high quality arts activities for children, Carclew artists will connect with and support local artists to develop their skill sets, and leave behind materials and resources for community use between visits.

What a great idea, cant wait for it to get to the Limestone Coast. I support this 100% , I worked with Fringe in Mount Gambier in conjunction with school children and local visual artist Henry Jock Walker. Henry did some amazing workshops with children and connected with them in a way that the results have been amazing. More of this needs to be occuring with all ages of children.

A great project that will have wide reaching audience and participant engagement is areas that dont always have the same access to artistic development opportunities as city based children and young people. Carclew is the lead agency for the delivery of such outcomes in South Australia, and as such has great skills and professional capacity to engage with professional artists to deliver outcomes - employment opportunities, professional development and skills development and learning for young people. A great project.

I add my whole hearted support to this project. Young minds need access to creative outlets to help develop skills and confidence as well as the opportunity to explore new things. Carclew's passionate and professional team will deliver a great product for the children and their families in these communities.

I think this a wonderful idea. Creativity enables divergent thinking and the arts are fundamental to this. Future great minds need to be able to divergently think otherwise we will have people who're not able to think out of the box.
