From the valley to the mallee
Opportunity for kids and teens
Airing on Channel31 and online in early 2023, artsbusTV is a community arts TV series that showcases creativity from the emerging generation. Facilitated by the Artists for Kids Culture artsbus team, the twelve episodes will feature young hosts, actors and directors across Victoria. The rest is up for the kids to decide!
‘Writers Room’ workshops for kids and teens are currently happening in term 4 across six Victorian locations: Latrobe Valley, Mornington Peninsula, Dandenong, South Melbourne, Geelong and Mildura. Kids and teens who live in other areas can participate through in-person or online sessions.
Artists for Kids Culture (AKC) invites children aged 10 – 17 years old to get involved. We are seeking kids and teens interested in script writing, acting, production, animation, or art! To get involved, please click the button below to register a child / teenager:
After you register, you will be contacted by Gen (AKC artsbus Program Manager) with details about the upcoming workshops in your area.
