artsbusTV - Latrobe Valley & Gippsland
Morwell, Traralgon & Mirboo North
Airing on Channel31 and online, 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 feature young hosts, actors and directors across Victoria aged 10 – 17 years old.
Two artsbusTV episodes feature the Latrobe Valley region. The “Writers Room” workshops took place in partnership with Latrobe Youth Space, involving fifteen kids and teens who shared ideas for the episodes.
Filming in Latrobe Valley commenced in November 2022 at Morwell’s International Rose Garden Festival. Eight participants filmed, directed and starred in the interviews and storytelling.
