For the first time, the Opera House will have a dedicated space for children and young people to experiment and learn in a building that embodies creativity and innovation.
The Creative Learning Centre will be a flexible space hosting workshops, creative-play activities, talks and performances, and will also include a separate space for a permanent digital classroom.
With the latest technology, students from Punchbowl to the Pilbara will be able to work with artists in programs spanning drama, music, maths, science, literature, history, Indigenous Australia and other study areas.
At the Creative Learning Centre, students will learn to collaborate in ways that foster creativity, problem-solving and innovative-thinking. They also will be able to create their own broadcasts.
This project transforms existing office spaces in the building's north-western corner to maximise public enjoyment of the extraordinary public asset that is the Opera House and enable artists, Opera House resident arts companies and creative-learning specialists to inspire young people, from ages 5 to 18.
