Art About Us

The Art about Us program aims to work with communities through participation in an arts program led by an artist. This program aims to: enhance the wellbeing and development of children through participation in creative activities; develop confidence and ideas for parents to engage creatively with their children; and extend the skills, knowledge and confidence of early years practitioners around facilitating meaningful creative experiences for young children. Each program was based within a selected Child and Family Centres (CFC) that provided support and venue for the program. Staff at the Centre worked closely with the artist. The program supported an artist residency of twenty days.
