Regional Arts Victoria is launching the Share Your Pocket Money fundraising drive throughout May and June to help disadvantaged regional school students experience high-quality art. Their aim is to provide access to high quality to all young people, not just those who can afford it.
A $5 donation will allow a Victorian student to access the Regional Arts Education & Families Program.
$20 will mean that four students from Murrayville will see lago by Western Edge Youth Arts.
$50 guarantees 10 students from Aitken Creek the opportunity to build helicopters with Furals HQ.
$100 gets 20 kids learning the Way of the Samurai in Manangatang.
Subsidies of up to 50% are also available to Victorian schools that are deemed to be disadvantaged by means of socio-economic circumstances, remoteness from Melbourne, high numbers of students for whom English is not their first language, culturally diverse schools, and schools affected by bushfire or other another disaster.
