Join us for Arts Factor, a program of Eisteddfods, Learning Exhibitions & Festivals enabling schools to share their arts learning & talents
What is Arts Factor?
Arts Factor runs in Terms 2, 3 and 4 and is a biannual event.
Arts factor is a free program of events that enable schools to share their arts learning and talents with each other.
This takes place in the form of Eisteddfods, Workshops for school-based programs ands Festivals that celebrate student talent alongside professional performers.
Schools and students are also able to enter a film festival at the end of the year.
There are a number of events throughout the year (listed below) for dance, music and drama.
Schools can participate in as many of the Term 2 Learning Exhibitions and festivals as they like. Outstanding performances will new selected for further mentoring later in the year.
What does Arts Factor look like?
Term 2: Learning Exhibitions
Arts Factor launches in Term 2 with Eisteddfods and Learning Exhibitions. These give students the opportunity to share creative work with other schools in the Diocese and give students the opportunity to perform for an audience outside their immediate school community.
Term 3: Workshops and Festivals
Term 3 will feature workshops for the CAPTIVATE in-school programs: band, strings and drama literacy. Schools will come together in clusters to share their learning and participate together in workshops which will conclude with a performance.
Term 4: Festivals and Film Festival
Term 4 feature dance and music festivals as well as CAPTURVATE, our first ever film festival!
