The West Australian Department of Culture and the Arts and the Department of Education joined forces to form ARTSEDGE.
"ARTSEDGE facilitates collaboration between the education, arts and cultural sectors. It supports art education by creating opportunities for partnerships and the enrichment of skills through professional learning programs."http://www.artsedge.dca.wa.gov.au/
Six Artist in Residence (AIR) $30,000 grants were awarded in 2010 and another six in 2011 to schools within the state. I am thrilled to receive a grant to work with Melville Primary School through out term 2 and 3.
