We are pleased to share our 2021-2023 Strategic Plan. This was developed by our 2020 executive to ensure that we are meeting our association’s objects by operationalising our vision. It is an aspirational strategic plan however we are confident that we will be able to reach our targets. The 2020 executive also looked to the National Advocates for Arts Education‘s publication More than words can say…a view of literacy through the arts to inform our direction. The strategic plan was endorsed at the AGM by our 2021 executive.

We are looking forward to a productive year ahead!
