During 2012, Carclew Youth Arts is celebrating four decades of nourishing the artistic and cultural lives of South Australian children and young people aged 26 and under.
To celebrate, on Saturday, April 21 everyone is invited to join in the fun at a 40th Birthday House Party in the Carclew grounds. “This year is a major milestone for us as an organisation,” said Tricia Walton, Carclew Chief Executive.
Since opening its doors in 1971 Carclew Youth Arts has touched the lives of tens-of-thousands of South Australians including children and young people who’ve participated in workshops, events, arts projects, funding and awards programs, and skills development programs.
Carclew Youth Arts is also celebrating the artists, teachers, administrators, mentors and parents who have helped make an incredible range of arts experiences possible.
The free public event will include food stalls, art exhibitions, art and craft workshops, live art, roaming performances and live music from three local bands; Atlantic Street Band, Max Savage and the False Idols, and The Germein Sisters.
“The day is about celebrating past achievements – we hope people will share their stories and memories from over 40 years of Carclew Youth Arts experiences,” said Tricia.
“It’s natural we want to look back over the good times, but we’re also looking forward and planning for an exciting future.
“Entry to the House Party is free, so we’re encouraging people to grab some friends and come and join in the fun.”
