Student voices in the arts

Participation in the arts enhances relationships and promotes inclusion, gives a sense of agency and autonomy and offers unique pathways for self expression and voice; all of which are linked to improved health.

The Arts Unit's Student Voices in the Arts Council (SVAC) is an opportunity for students to advocate for and articulate the value of the arts for themselves and others.

Expressions of interest are now closed for new council members in 2021.

All meetings are held online and applications are open to any NSW Public School students in Year 5 to 11.
