St Martin’s Playground Project
This community engagement initiative uses the arts to create accessible and inclusive spaces, build social connectedness, and improve physical and mental health for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged children and young people in Stonnington.
Since 2013, St Martins has been running a weekly arts program delivered at the Horace Petty Estate supported by a team of Youth Workers from Stonnington Youth Services. From 2013-2017, AKC is a key partner in this program and the partnership has seen immense growth in the participation in the program by young people and families. In 2017 and beyond, this thriving partnership hopes to continue to create opportunities for artistic engagement with the most disadvantaged families in the Stonnington municipality.
