Continue the journey to discover how Before, During, After was created.
This program is delivered by two of Australia’s arts leaders; writer Libby Hathorn and composer Elena Kats-Chernin. Before, During, After is a space to share stories and new ideas – where you can meet and interact with leading professional artists, to share the love of arts and literature. The program aims to engage children with literature and the creative process through questioning, and examining what it means to be an artist and how artists arrive at their original ideas - connecting children with their artistic and literary potential.
