Shopfront working with your school

School Matinees

Shopfront Matinees are an ideal school excursion. For large bookings we will provide you with a school information pack, a Q&A with the creatives, and teacher tickets. Contact Shopfront for more information and to make your booking.

School Incursions

Shopfront can come to you with our Shopfront School Incursions. Shopfront works across art forms and can shape our workshops, projects or performances to the needs of your school. We use digital media, film, performance, theatre, sculpture, installation, and art-making to encourage creative expression and to build confidence and community.


Playwave creates connections between Young People and the arts through immersive online and curated real life experiences. Playwave is an initiative from Shopfront and our Young People as a way of connecting Young People with the arts in Sydney and beyond. Playwave sign-up is free for ages 15-20, and we can work with your school to customise arts-based experiences involving our arts industry partners. Find out more about Playwave.

The students developed skills and attitudes that the school could not provide and students were exposed to learning opportunities that challenged not only their practical skills but also their values and ideals about the world around them. We look forward to future opportunities to work with Shopfront.”
