About Us

The Arts Unit provides a state wide infrastructure for arts education. It delivers programs in dance, drama, music, visual arts, debating, public speaking, reading, spelling and special events. Its priorities are:

  • Creating learning experiences which complement and extend local school and network programs
  • Building capacity to deliver arts education through targeted teacher professional learning
  • Providing high profile performance, exhibition and competition opportunities.

Annually more than 44,000 students and 6,000 teachers directly participate in The Arts Unit’s programs and an additional 433,000 students access these programs.
