Spotlight: Art Gallery of NSW Supports Program for Disadvantaged Youth

Kudos to Art Gallery of NSW for continuing to support a program that caters to students who are disadvantaged by geographic, economic and cultural factors.

ARTside-in! is a unique three-stage outreach program for years 10, 11 and 12 Visual Arts students in NSW who would otherwise have limited opportunity to access the Gallery’s collection, exhibitions and services. In order to participate in the metropolitan and regional ARTside-In! programs, a school must be supported by the NSW Department of Education and Training Priority Schools Program (PSP).

Students who are disadvantaged by geographic, economic and cultural factors are able to participate in the Gallery and wider art world, making valuable connections to the Visual Arts syllabus, while discovering more about arts careers and potential professional pathways for their futures. It is also an opportunity for the Gallery, in turn, to learn from students and teachers, both at the Gallery itself and in the school environment.
