Education

Bendigo Venues and Events offers schools a host of opportunities that complement a visit to our theatres to watch a live performance. 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 theatre experience and link to curriculum outcomes.

Contact the Education Engagement Officer to find out more about how your school could make the most of these amazing opportunities. Email c.shanahan@bendigo.vic.gov.au or call 0488 666 206.
