  2. A Teacher Professional Learning Program, to develop confidence in teaching through creativity, held at both your school and the Sydney Opera House.  
  3. An Amplified Festival, a showcase of your students’ performance on the stages of the Sydney Opera House, for schools participating in the Artist In Residency Program.
