WEDNESDAY 13 SEPTEMBER from 5.30 – 8.45pm

The annual BIG ART Festival is a creative exhibition of artistic expression and bold new ideas in Music, Visual Arts, Drama and Media. It provides an exciting way for students from ELC to Year 12 to explore, express and communicate ideas, beliefs and values through critical thinking and imaginative play.

This year our theme is ‘Embrace the Journey’ with students creating works based on leadership, collaboration, enterprise and passion. It is about the role we each have in society and that by working together as individuals and as citizens of the world, we can make a difference through our everyday actions.

Explore the Festival, which will feature some fantastic interactive ‘art play’ activities that everyone can get involved in, together with wonderful music and drama performances by our students, and vibrant art and media exhibitions.

Auction

This year we will be holding an auction at 6.20pm with items provided by our students across different year levels.
