Creative Schools & Communities
An arts education helps build academic skills and increase academic performance, while also providing alternate opportunities to reward the skills of children who learn differently'
Gavin Newson, Governor of California
Through the Creative Schools & Communities program, Corrugated Iron Youth Arts works in partnership with schools and communities across the Top End, creating custom-built arts residencies and education projects in remote, regional and urban settings.
Through community collaborations we create both short term projects and long term partnerships, responding to the diverse needs and energy of young people. Corrugated Iron provides a safe environment of inclusivity that supports educators, families and youth services resulting in meaningful artistic outcomes and experiences.

Gunbalanya short film May 2019
This is a short film made by Nat Kelly of the mural being made in Gunbalanya.
This film was also shown as part of the NT Traveling Film festival in Gunbalanya.
Teaching artist Janie Andrews worked closely with young people at the West Arnhem sport and recreation hall to make the beautiful mural featured in this film come to life.
Thank you to all involved and the Gunbalanya community for making this project possible.
Whole school performances
Yirrkala Council and Corrugated Iron Youth Arts have worked on many dance, circus and public performance projects over the years.
This is a snapshot of the 2018 dance project in Term 4 for the end of year performances for the school assembly. the students at the school picked a theme and Corrugated Iron dancers helped the young people to choreograph the routines and build their confidence to perform in front of their friends and families.
