About the artsbus
The artsbus is a mobile arts studio, theatre and music space, enabling AKC to facilitate meaningful, thoughtful and therapeutic arts activities. It brings quality arts practices to children who would otherwise miss out.
Many children and young people with complex lives find it difficult to access arts activities due to financial hardship, transport issues and other responsibilities . Like a ‘mobile library’, the artsbus travels to children, eliminating issues of access. The artsbus provides a quality, best practice creative opportunities, for those who may otherwise miss-out.

“The artsbus came to Maroondah Festival to offer a free drop-in activity for kids and teens. The set-up was absolutely streamlined and provided a welcoming entry point for young people to get creative. The team were lots of fun and very accessible. In all we enjoyed a brilliant day with the AKC team and would highly recommend this as an engagement activity for communities”
