Welcome to Adelaide Festival Centre’s Learning Program!

We are in a moment in time where nurturing creative thinking is so incredibly important. Adelaide Festival Centre’s schools program, centrED continues to provide exciting and comprehensive experiences for teachers and students to engage with cross-curricular arts learning experiences in South Australia’s premier performing arts centre.

Our programs are curated to enrich and extend the learning of both you and your students. centrED is supported by the South Australian Department for Education. Our aim is to provide equitable access to curriculum connected, quality arts learning experiences.

We no longer announce a year-long program, but rather we announce new shows, workshops and other learning opportunities throughout the year, so please ensure you sign up to receive centrED eNews and follow us on Facebook.
