ARTucation

 

Overview

Youth Solutions’ ARTucation project fuses alcohol and other drug education for young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, with creative expression through Aboriginal art. The project particularly seeks to engage with young Aboriginal people living in the Campbelltown area of New South Wales.

Developed in late 2013, ARTucation is delivered in conjunction with local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists.

Young people take part in a series of workshops where they learn about alcohol and other drug related harms, with a focus on knowledge and skill development. The young people then express what they have learnt by creating an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art inspired mural.

In 2015, ARTucation was named the winner of the Champions of the West Award for Indigenous Excellence.

At the end of the 2014 - 2015 financial year, ARTucation and the YARN@school projects were merged to simply become ARTucation.
