Casula Powerhouse delivers free online programs

Casula Powerhouse delivers free online programs
April 8, 2020

Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre (CPAC) is introducing an ongoing series of free online programming designed to engage artists, educators and the community during COVID-19 restrictions.

Rolling out over the coming weeks and months, the series of online experiences includes backstage curatorial tours, interviews with artists, podcast recordings, an online market, cooking classes with CPAC’s resident chef Frederico Rekowski, edible gardening tips with in-house gardener Lauren Booth and much more.

Children’s activities will be a focus in the initial stages with the CPAC team rolling out their usual school holiday programming online. Comic creations, Claymation, drawing, science and art classes will all be made available online for free. Families can join in and be part of the program, with a series of worksheets available for children to use in the online workshops.

CPAC Director Craig Donarski advised “as well as keeping audiences interested, amused, entertained and educated during a period when we’re at home, our digital programming gives artists and educators a valuable platform to share their creativity and insights with the world.

“Art and creativity are really important in these times, and this is how we’ll get through the difficult stuff and make sense of the world when the world seems to make no sense at all.”

More than just pushing out content, CPAC is encouraging people to share what they are doing during their time at home. What are you making or cooking, what are your pets up to or are you reading a good book that you’re desperate to share? The CPAC team wants to hear, see and share your experience online with the community they are creating.

Donarski  added “Interconnectivity is going to be so important for us to all get through this together. We want CPAC’s online channels to become a portal for us to connect, engage and inspire as a community.”

For more information and to get involved, sign up to the CPAC newsletter at casulapowerhouse.com and go to CPAC social media channels where information and parts of the programming will go live.

The CPAC newsletter will provide a weekly digest of when the various programming is dropping as well as sharing what other arts institutions, creatives and educators from around the world are doing in the digital space for you to participate in.
