Creative Vic launches inaugural Learning Partnerships program

Two Victorian schools have received government funding for projects that work in partnership with local writers as part of the inaugural Creative Learning Partnerships (CLP) program.

A partnership between the Department of Education and Training and Creative Victoria, the CLP program offers grants to schools ‘to work in partnership with Victorian creative practitioners and organisations on projects that use creativity as a catalyst for student learning’.

Over 17 schools received funding for partnerships with a range of creative practitioners, including artists, writers, actors, musicians and museums. 

Warrnambool East Primary School receives a grant of $10,000 for students in grades 5 and 6 to learn from author Bruce Pascoe and artist Vicky Shukuroglou. Pascoe and Shukuroglou will explore ‘the Aboriginal history of the region and sharing their own connections to Country’.

St Kilda Park Primary School receives a grant of $10,000 for students in grades 3-6 to work with artist and theatre writer Maryanne Lynch and writer Richard Holt on a ‘microfiction’ creative writing project that explores Fitzroy Street, St Kilda.
