Bungee is an inclusive resilience building program that promotes emotional wellbeing through the arts. The program supports young people (aged 5-18) to participate in activities designed to build resilience, enhance well-being and social and emotional health. Bungee fosters a supportive environment that encourages participants to socially connect with others as well as develop new and existing artistic skills. Bungee classes operate across the ACT and are facilitated in a small, safe and supportive group setting.
Bungee offers a suite of art based programs in schools and community settings. The program employs professional artists and support workers who develop a series of interactive, structured workshops that are tailored to the individual skill level, need and interest of the enrolled participants. The programs offer weekly sessions and run over eight weeks in a school setting and nine weeks in the community settings.
All programs are free of charge, offered during the school term and are limited to groups of eight. An intake interview with the parents/caregivers is required.
Bungee after school classes support participants to take part in activities designed to enhance well-being and social and emotional health.
