The 2019 Education Program provided exciting opportunities for students of all ages, with activities and resources that extend teaching and learning beyond the festival and into the classroom in a comprehensive program.

Showcasing our commitment to photography as a powerful education tool, the program delivered curriculum-aligned teaching and learning possibilities across a range of subject areas from visual arts, photography and media to geography, humanities, science, history, politics, Chinese and Indigenous studies.

Students were encouraged to explore exhibitions through engagement in workshops, talks and other education activities. There were some great offerings during this year’s festival at locations across Ballarat, with two inspiring BIFB student projects showcased in the Ballarat Botanic Gardens and Stockland Wendouree.
