Our purpose

The Arts Learning Festival is hosted biennially by Independent Schools Victoria and we invite schools from all sectors to take part.

First held in 2017, the festival brings together some of the best Australian and international artists to deliver a range of interactive and interactive virtual events with deep connections to the curriculum.

We also hold an annual Student Poetry Competition and Student Film Festival, which celebrate the creative talents of school students across Victoria.
