As creative educators we are aware that arts and design-rich education fosters student confidence, creative skills and critical thinking across all learning areas and general life skills. At LCI, we are committed to fostering the next generation of creative professionals and believe that practical, industry facing initiatives at secondary school level sets students apart when seeking out creative study and career opportunities.

The LCI Melbourne School Kinship Program has been designed to offer both local and regional school students the opportunity to experience contemporary practice across multiple creative disciplines. Explore new ideas, discuss current creative career environments and experience what it is like to study with LCI Melbourne.
These experiences are offered face-to-face and online, as a single or double periods and half day or full day sessions. We can facilitate these workshops as school excursions to our Collingwood campus, as well as incursions to your school for free.
In 2021, we worked with over 50 incredible high schools in Victoria! If you would like to review the full Kinship Menu and book your class in for 2022, please contact Todd Anthony.
