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.

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.
