Festival of Learning

The Festival of Learning invites individuals, families, communities and workplaces to celebrate and take part in learning. There are many opportunities for you to discover something new and celebrate the transformational power of learning.

Organisations from across the country held events demonstrating the learning opportunities that they provide, attracting new learners and inspiring adults to discover how learning can transform lives. See Activity Highlights here.
