Cultural Projects

Cultural development is an important aspect of Council’s arts strategy. Opportunities for lead artists to work and share their skills with groups of people result in great experiences such as The Garden with Amaroo, Crashendo and Sistema Australia’s pilot project at Laverton P-12, and the Boon Wurrung Ngargee delivered as part of the 2011 Mayoral Program.

Crashendo - Sistema at Laverton P-12

Crashendo is a music project that creates opportunities for younger children and their families to experience and learn about music in a supportive after-school setting. This model has had successful outcomes in disadvantaged communities, most notably in Venezuela where it started as El Sistema and in Scotland where it runs as Big Noise. Crashendo at Laverton P-12 is a national pilot. View our Crashendo 2011 documentary below.
