The arts can be used to support educational or extension activities. People respond emotionally to art and the arts can be used to support more formal training activities. The arts are very good at inspiring or enthusing people to take action or change behaviour. We have used a variety of arts in our extension practices for many years and have learnt what work well for different audiences (and also what doesn’t work!). Visual arts, music, theatre and even dance can be used to enhance extension programs, conferences, workshops or training events. We work in conjunction with our partner EcoArts Australis to develop one-off activities or more complete programs of events, activities and resources.
