RGQ Educators' Series
Our Educators Series has finished for 2021. If you'd like to receive notification of when our 2022 opportunities will be rolled out, please send an email to our Communications & Marketing Coordinator .
Our Educators' Series is all about incorporating re-use and sustainability into education through art and play; while learning about waste reduction and the environment.
During our 2021 Educators' Series we explored:
Loose Parts Play Outdoors; and
Art in STEM
If you missed out but would like to have us out to run a PD workshop at your centre, you can book through our on-line request form.
Keep in touch with us about upcoming Creative Classrooms events and new resources by signing up for our e-newsletter:
WornOUT Exhibition - Refashion, Wearable Art, Cosplay
It was with a heavy heart that we announced last year that we would not be putting on our 2020 WornOUT Exhibition.
We hope to be back to our full and fabulous glory for WornOUT 2021 and we look forward to celebrating our community of creative reusers in refashion, wearable art and cosplay.
