This is the FINAL opportunity for teachers, students and interested people, to view the Justice Through the Arts Schools Event Pre-Recorded Webinars in Term 3

These pre-recorded Webinars showcase how the arts can be a powerful way to raise awareness about issues of Social Justice, Human Rights and Eco Justice and help build the capacity for social change.

You will see all the wonderful Performances/Presentations/Productions that the nine participating schools prepared as part of the Justice Through the Arts Schools Event 2020, featuring the theme There is Always HOPE. They are filled with Creativity, Inspiration and Learning.

In Part 2 of the of the pre-recorded Webinars, the author and ambassador of the Justice Through the Arts Program, Melina Marchetta will speak to us about the importance of HOPE.

The 4 Areas of Focus are:
• Indigenous Issues
• The Uluru Statement from the Heart
