Support & Networks

To help our members and the broader visual arts education community in connecting with each other, we have compiled a list of networks operating across Victoria.

If you have recently moved to a new area, or are looking to share ideas and materials with other educators around you, joining a network is a great way to start. Below is a list of teacher-run networks operating in Victoria. If you wish to join, please contact the network using the details provided.
