Schools program cancelled due to COVID
Regrettably, the WAM Schools Program has been cancelled for 2021. We are genuinely sorry and disappointed to have had to make this decision, especially given the program was fully booked. We thank you for your enthusiastic uptake of sessions this year and for your support of WAM in general. We’ll be back next year!
Alternative ways to engage with authors
Leigh Hobbs has created some fantastic short 5 minute films that you can use in your classrooms as a springboard to activities and discussion. We have made these available here.
Leigh Hobbs and Sofie Laguna are both available to Zoom into your classrooms. If you wish to book them, please contact their booking agent, Nexus Arts.
