Regional Schools

Bringing students to Belvoir to see our plays and bringing Belvoir to students, wherever in the state they live.

In-line with COVID-safe guidelines we have recommenced our in-school access program. The health and safety of our artists and participating students is always our first priority. We are also offering a selection of our workshops digitally.

 

Belvoir Education runs a range of access programs that work to remove obstacles to students experiencing and enjoying theatre.

If you are teaching in a high school in regional NSW, then you may be eligible to apply for our full range of practical theatre workshops in both performance and design for the subsidised price of $12 per student.

This workshop program is offered to ensure all students across NSW have access to Belvoir’s wide range of student workshops, led by industry professionals. Our workshops support work in the classroom and equip students with skills, strategies, practical activities and ideas.

Program details

All of our workshops are run by industry professionals who equip participants with skills, strategies, practical activities and ideas.

These workshops are delivered at your school and are offered for a subsidised price of $12 per student per workshop.

Student workshops run for two hours during term time, Monday to Friday, dependent on the availability of our tutors.

Ideally each workshop should have 20 to 30 participants. For smaller groups we recommend combining year groups or joining with a nearby school.

Workshops give senior students access to industry expertise which supports their HSC studies. Workshops are adjusted to give younger students a fun insight into the performing arts.
