Policy Brief Launch on 23 November 2020

Please join us for the online launch of the Critical Policy Brief: Transitioning Young People to Education and Employment through Arts-based Social Enterprises.

The briefing draws upon the expertise of RMIT’s education, art and social science research community to inform policy makers on opportunities and challenges for arts-based social enterprises (ASEs) in supporting the engagement, well-being, education and employment pathways of marginalised young people, while trading creative products or services to help fulfil that mission.

On 23 November 2020, from 12 to 1:30pm, the critical policy brief will be launched by Nicholas Verginis of Social Enterprise Network of Victoria, followed by a panel of speakers comprising of Dr Grace McQuilten and Professor Peter Kelly of RMIT, Kate Gillick of Outer Urban Projects, Farah Farouque of The Social Studio, and Professor Jo Barraket of Swinburne. The event will be chaired by Distinguished Professor Larissa Hjorth, Director, Design & Creative Practice of RMIT.

The policy brief outlines key findings from an Australian Research Council funded study, “Arts Based Social Enterprise and Marginalised Young People’s Transitions” led by Professor Peter Kelly, Dr Grace McQuilten, Associate Professor Kimberly Humphery and Dr Amy Spiers of RMIT University, and Dr Deborah Warr of Charles Sturt University. This four-year project has involved research with arts-based social enterprises across Australia, including undertaking 60 interviews with staff and participants from twelve ASE organisations, and conducting three in-depth case studies with Melbourne enterprises The Social Studio, Outer Urban Projects and Youthworx Productions.
