ADFAS Pokolbin Young Arts Program provides an opportunity for students at our local Public Schools to experience art, culture and performance at its best! Some of the schools events require funded travel to Sydney for guided tours of art exhibitions or to experience a performance at the Opera House. Others are locally based involving touring art performances, exhibitions and local art events. Our aim is to encourage the young students to enjoy music, theatre and the arts in all its forms.

As well as direct donations from members, we conduct raffles at lecture nights, and organise special functions such as movie outings been very active over the past few years in its support of this Program, the object of which is to inspire young people to adopt an enthusiasm for the Arts.
