The College is delighted to share that All Saints’ College, via HotHouse Company, has signed on as a supporting partner for the Perth Festival 2023.
HotHouse Company and All Saints' College will be hosting several professional learning sessions associated with the Festival’s Creative Learning program in the new year, further highlighting the College as a leader in the Arts space.
HotHouse Company – All Saints’ College’s Arts innovation program – works across and beyond the Arts disciplines of Dance, Drama, Visual Arts, Media and Music to create opportunities that connect students, artists and the broader community. Through highly collaborative approaches, HotHouse Company focuses on bringing the curriculum to life and celebrating creative excellence in all its forms.
Perth Festival is a not-for-profit multi-arts festival that brings world class performance, music, film, visual arts and literary events to Perth during the summer and showcases local and international artists.
The backbone of the Perth Arts scene, the Festival is Australia’s longest-running Arts festival and, this year, marks 70 years of celebrating rich traditions, cultural growth, and established and emerging artists.

This partnership with Perth Festival epitomises HotHouse Company’s key connection points: connecting students to artists, artists to opportunities, and audiences to experiences. Recognising that a significant amount of learning occurs outside the traditional classroom setting, HotHouse Company cultivates diverse projects and opportunities for students to foster their individual creativity, capabilities and connection.
Perth Festival’s Creative Learning program is a pathway to encourage creative expression, active participation and a life-long love of the Arts through a diverse range of free and paid events for students, young people and educators. The Professional Learning program allows educators to explore current industry trends, exchange ideas and network with educators and arts professionals, alongside experiencing cutting edge, live performances.
The Perth Festival kicks off on 10 February and runs until 5 March across various venues around Perth.
