Our purpose

Our Arts Learning Festival celebrates the importance of the arts in education. Independent Schools Victoria, representing more than 220 schools, hosts the festival, and we invite all schools from all sectors to take part. The biennial festival was held in 2017 and 2019, and we present festival events throughout the year. Our theme is ‘unlimited imagination’, with a program that has deep connections to the classroom, allowing educators to use the festival to deliver the curriculum.
