Community Outreach Program

Australian National University Community Outreach Program

artsACT has finalised a new three-year funding agreement for the ANU Community Outreach Program for 2018 to 2020.  In line with the ACT Arts Policy, new and dynamic programs will provide significant opportunities for all members of the Canberra community to engage with the School of Music and the School of Art and Design.

The School of Music will deliver a range of new programs including Girls Rock for young girls, Girls Jazz for women and girls, the Community School of Rock for any member of the community to further develop their music skills, My Song mentorship program with Gugan Gulwan Aboriginal Youth, and the Developing Musicians program which will provide non-auditioned music tuition, workshops and ensemble performances for Year 7 to 12 students.

The Music for Colleges program will be transitioned off arts funding after 2019. The program will receive funding for 2018 and 2019 to enable Year 11 and 12 students currently enrolled in this program to complete the course at the end of 2019.

The Music Engagement Program is no longer funded as part of the Community Outreach Program. Canberra students wishing to engage with music development programs through the ANU will have access to the Developing Musicians program, as described above.

The School of Art and Design will also deliver a range of new community outreach programs. These are Jacks and Punties glassblowing for disadvantaged community members, Bundian Way - an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander program, College program for ACT students to experience visual art courses, and a Professional Development program for graduating ANU students.

Total funding for the ANU Community Outreach Program over the next three years is $2,093,271.
