Working with children

Arts Tasmania is committed to encouraging the involvement of young people and children in the arts, both as participants in the creative process and as audience members. Such involvement needs to be within a set of safeguards that protect children from exploitation and harm.

If you are successful in receiving investment from Arts Tasmania, you will be obligated to abide by the Australia Council for the Arts’ protocols for working with children and any relevant laws and regulations that apply in Tasmania or other jurisdictions where the funded project or program is taking place.

Details on the requirements in Tasmania are available at:
