Bendigo Venues & Events offers schools a host of opportunities to engage with the artists who visit our spaces. These experiences can greatly complement a trip to our theatres to watch a live performance or participation in an Arts program hosted at one of our venues. From masterclasses with world class artists and in-school workshops to meet-the-artist and career development talks we have a selection of events taking place all year round to enhance your Arts education experience and link to curriculum outcomes.

Walking on stone and cement it can be hard to remember what it feels like to have earth beneath our feet. What does it mean to be where we are? By opening up the acknowledgement of Country and taking a closer look within it, we search for a way to address the possible lack of connection contemporary Australians have with the spirituality of the land. We follow the journey of three contemporary Australian circus artists with distinct relationships with Country; an indigenous Australian, a descendant of migrants, and a descendant of colonial settlers.
'Of the Land on Which We Meet' hopes to re-discover a connection we once had on Country with 60,000 years of history, spirit and story.
