what we do‎ > ‎

creative arts

Creative arts workshops develop children and young people’s creativity through visual arts, music and drama. They foster self-expression, esteem, emotional expression, communication skills and provide positive learning experiences. The Shack provides inclusive programs and specialised programs for young people who are facing challenges such as poor educational experiences, family breakdown, mental health issues, substance abuse and offending behaviours. 




Digital Storytelling

Digital Storytelling allows young people to use technology to tell stories about their lives. It is an engaging, rewarding and often cathartic process that assists young people to create short stories that can be put into a variety of traditional and social media formats and gives them a solid piece of work to show at the end. Our workshops creating Digital Stories are varied, we provide inclusive programs open to all young people from 9 to 18 years of age and specialised workshops as required. 

Dates: The next workshop runs 21 to 25 January 2013 from 10am to 4pm daily.
