Workshops 2019

Tasmania’s Department of Education is working with us on an expanded trial of the new SongMakers model this year, across five regions in that State.

Each region will nominate a hub school that will host a workshop for students from its own and neighbouring schools. This is a great way of helping make stronger connections for schools, teachers and students in each region. Plus it’s real world: writers get put together with people they don’t know and have to work against the clock to come up with a song. They start the day as strangers and end as a team of co-creators.

The hub schools for the trial are Claremont College, Hobart; Launceston College, St Mary’s High, New Norfolk High & Don College.

The trial also includes two teacher masterclasses on music industry skills and pathways, to be held at MONA and Launceston College.
