Creative Connections: An Arts in Education Partnership Framework
In 2002 the former DCA and the then Department of Education and Training (now Department of Education) agreed to develop an arts in education partnership framework for Western Australia.
Creative Connections: An Arts in Education Partnership Framework 2005 - 2007 (PDF) was jointly released in January 2005.
DCA conducted an audit and review of the framework in 2008, in consultation with the arts and education sectors. This work, together with changes in national education policy, informed the development of Creative Connections: An Arts in Education Partnership Framework 2010 – 2014 (PDF) - extended until 31 December 2016.
Creative Connections reflects the best in national and State policy development and provides the framework to deliver the best value for the public. Creative Connections builds on the expertise, understanding and operational capacity of both Departments in stimulating an education system that nurtures increased creativity, imagination, skills and knowledge.
