It's a privilege to offer such a captivating program of world-class arts events designed to thrill, excite and inspire the hearts and minds of your students. The 2012 Perth Festival gives young people even more opportunities to participate in hands-on workshops with international artists, musicians and acclaimed authors. The impact of these experiences is enhanced by quality support resources, professional development opportunities and more information at perthfestival.com.au/learning.
As well as the specially selected shows in these pages, I encourage families to join in the larger Festival, including our major free opening events and visual arts installations around the City.
Acknowledgement and warm thanks go to the Department of Education and our Family and Education Partner Rio Tinto. Their generous support makes the breadth and depth of our engagement even more profound than ever. I look forward to welcoming you and your school to many events and wish you an unforgettable Festival.
