I want to open the eyes of the young to the wonders of contemporary art.

- John Kaldor

Kaldor Public Art Projects is a uniquely valuable resource for contemporary visual arts research and learning. Our core belief is that learning through art encourages creativity, imagination and vital academic and social skills.

Along with our diverse range of accessible programs, we offer innovative resources, outreach activities, and tailored opportunities for students of all ages and backgrounds. Our commitment to participation, collaboration and professional development is informed by our goals:

  • Deliver quality programs, informed by contemporary art practice and the highest pedagogical standards, free of charge

  • Value artists and the creative process as central to arts learning

  • Work closely with our partners throughout Australia to develop programs that support and sustain engagement with contemporary art across all levels of learning

  • Build on our relationships with educational partners to encourage a dynamic exchange of ideas, resources and skills

  • Nurture future generations of artists and arts professionals through extensive opportunities for mentoring and professional development

  • Expand our educational access and outreach program for disadvantaged communities and people with disability

  • Harness the potential of interactive technologies to inspire new modes of engagement, allowing audiences everywhere to connect with the latest ideas in contemporary art


Kaldor Public Art Projects has pioneered the use of new technology to present innovative models of participation and engagement with contemporary art. Interactive digital resources have the potential to challenge the traditional teacher-led approach both onsite or in the classroom – bringing the artistic and curatorial process to life, allowing students and audiences to direct their own learning and generating new online communities. Kaldor Public Art Projects, in partnership with the New South Wales Department of Education, has developed the screen-based resources MOVE: Video art in schools and MOVE Primary: Art in motion to support the curriculum in primary and secondary schools.
