Learning is at the heart of what we do at Windmill. We strongly believe in nurturing creative literacy in young people through our Education Program.
Every year we offer schools access to a wide range of theatrical performances, supported by comprehensive study guides and unique interactive learning experiences. We also offer professional learning opportunities for educators, work placements, and free workshops and activities for children and families outside of the school program.
For all seasons in South Australia we offer dedicated school’s performances and post-performance Q/A’s for deeper engagement.
Education is at the core of what we do here at Windmill. We work with artists, industry-leading educators, hip designers and the brainiest software developers to design digital education resources that create a deep engagement with our stories. Our resources include exclusive behind the scenes content, dedicated study guides linked to the Australian Curriculum and (award winning!) immersive digital experiences that plunge users into the ideas that inspire our original repertoire of work.
Windmill’s Free Seats Program provides 15% of seats to every performance season free of charge to South Australian schools ranked 1-4 on the Department for Education’s Index of Disadvantage. This enables us to provide equitable access to the transformative impact that theatre and live performance has on young people. For more information, please send us an email.
Access and Inclusion
At Windmill, we want to ensure that theatre remains accessible and caters to the needs of young people from all over South Australia. Access services, including Auslan interpretation and audio description, are available upon request to all schools’ performances. If you have any questions, please get in touch.
Due to the changing nature of the current COVID situation, we’re pressing pause on offering work placements in the first half of 2022 to limit the amount of people our staff, artists and crew come into contact with. This is to ensure the safety of our community during this difficult time.
We’ll be announcing opportunities for work experience placements in the second half of the year.
Stay safe and healthy in the meantime. And if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Windmill hosts professional development workshops for educators periodically throughout the year. Subscribe to our e/news for updates.
