From Albany to Port Hedland, Perth to Pingrup, FORM’s creative projects—whether they cultivate artistic excellence, enrich shared spaces, make art more accessible or nurture Western Australia’s dynamism and vibrancy—are strengthened by the participation and collaboration of community.
Artist talks, curator walk-throughs, professional development, collaborations, workshops, place curation through public art and events, exhibition openings, artist and expert residencies are some of the things FORM offers for communities to explore and embrace creativity.
FORM’s Creative Learning Program aims to improve the learning outcomes of young Western Australians. It does so by activating creative learning strategies through the establishment of meaningful partnerships between teachers, creative (arts) practitioners and young people.
This program builds on robust international evidence that deploying art based pedagogies across the curriculum improves the quality and impact of general education.
Creative Schools is a learning program that explores the academic, emotional and social value of bringing ‘creative practitioners’ directly into school environments, through a sustained engagement. Creative Schools is a FORM developed program, designed and implemented in partnership with Creativity, Culture and Education (CCE), an international foundation dedicated to unlocking the creativity of children and young people.
The only certainty about the future is uncertainty. Many educators recognise the importance of creativity for young people: the ability to develop original solutions, to cope with unpredictability, to respond positively to change and to display flexibility of mind.
Through the Creative Learning program, FORM designs projects that prepare young people for the unpredictable future by nurturing their creative habits of mind: being inquisitive, collaborative, persistent,disciplined and imaginative.

The Creative Learning program was initiated and is managed by FORM. Creative Schools is supported by Department of Education.
