A core focus of Belvoir’s mission is to provide opportunities for audiences to access our work regardless of economic status, cultural background, age or geographic location. One of the most meaningful ways we accomplish this is through our diverse suite of youth and education programs.
The exposure to experts working professionally in the theatre world is a golden opportunity for our kids.

Belvoir’s Education Program gives young people across NSW opportunities to see our world-class productions, participate in a broad range of hands-on workshops or even have an artist visit their classroom. We also work with young people who have suffered homelessness or drug addiction and provide a platform for them to perform their stories on stage, under lights in front of a live audience.
Belvoir invests over $650,000 in these education activities each year. With only a small amount of government funding, we rely on individuals and organisations who understand the important role the arts can play in enriching the lives of young people. We’d like you to join them to see for yourself what an investment in Belvoir enables, as well as the value it offers you, your organisation and your staff.
Theatre can be truly entertaining, but our Education Program ensures young people don’t just have a good time in the theatre: it improves their literacy, confidence, critical thinking and social skills as well.
The programs also help students develop reading, writing, listening – and speaking skills, as well as their verbal and non-verbal language and problem solving abilities. We demonstrate the power of storytelling and give young people the tools they need to communicate effectively throughout their lives.
It is a life saver to a small school. We could not afford to send 45 students to the city for these workshops.
