Museum of Brisbane (MoB) is seeking your support to increase access to the regions most disadvantaged children and young people and provide them with opportunities to experience our city’s vibrant culture.
Many schools and community organisations in Brisbane struggle to rise to the challenge of creating equal access to arts-based learning.
MoB Learn Assist programs are more crucial than ever before, and our goal is to raise $30,000 to continue to support children and young people across all cultural backgrounds.
Your donation will provide access for children, young people and their teachers to participate in the cultural life of their city. Contributions of all sizes play an important and vital role, and donations of $2 and over are tax-deductible.
If you would like further information about this initiative, please contact email@example.com or phone 07 3339 0800.
Enriching cultural experiences add greater meaning and purpose to the lives of children and young people and have lasting social benefits for their well-being. Participating in arts-based learning makes a powerful difference for young people in Australia and their ability to perceive, imagine, create, think, feel, symbolise, communicate, understand and become confident individuals.
In 2019, our ‘MoB Learn Assist’ program touched the lives of some of our city’s most disadvantaged students. With philanthropic support, 966 students and 95 staff from 13 different schools accessed our learning programs, visitors who would have otherwise been unable to attend.
“Thank you for showing us the museum, it was amazing! I had never been on a bus or in an elevator before. It was exciting and scary. Me and my class loved the tour. It was so cool. Me and my family mite come there again” Grade 3 student
Students participated across curriculum areas, including Humanities and Social Sciences, Modern History, Visual Arts, Design, Fashion, Civics and Citizenships, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures.
In 2020, MoB focused on rapidly developing learn-at-home materials. We designed and delivered videos, worksheets, online courses, craft supplies and curriculum resources to 51 schools and learning organisations in greater Brisbane.
In 2021, we need your help to enable us to continue to deliver this valuable program.
