Arts Education 2019

Shoalhaven Entertainment Centre provides multiple ways in which young people can engage with the arts, whether it’s through experiencing performances or participation in workshops.

“The Arts also have a unique role for young Australians. Compared to people aged over 24, young people are much more likely to say that the Arts have a big impact on self-expression and creative thinking.” Australia Council for the Arts
