As part of Arts Victoria’s Extended School Residencies program, schools are paired with professional arts organisations in order to embark on inventive and original arts projects. Caroline Chisholm Catholic College in Braybrook has been fortunate enough to be partnered with the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI).
With a monetary grant of $35,000 received from Arts Victoria, students will help bring to life the ‘Beyond Projection’ project, which seeks to explore the ways in which we communicate. Students will learn about different moving image types such as stop motion animation and live-action film making. Links will then be made with the arts of storytelling, drama and music. The project will eventually result in a moving image piece which will be projected onto the school building for the community to enjoy.
Through the program, the arts organisations will work in the partner school for a minimum of two school terms within the 2015 school year.
Caroline Chisholm Catholic College is a Roman Catholic co-educational day school for years 7–12 located in the western suburb of Braybrook in Melbourne, Australia. The college seeks to provide a holistic education and to empower all members of the college community to reach their full potential.
