The Yonder project: Stories of impact, change, and capacity building through engagement in arts education

Jones, Adrianne L. (2015) The Yonder project: Stories of impact, change, and capacity building through engagement in arts education. Masters by Research thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis examined the long-term impact of the community arts education project Yonder, a collaboration between Education Queensland and Queensland Performing Arts Centre. The findings from the data reveal that the project was still having impact twelve months after its completion and that in some instances the project served as a 'circuit-breaker', especially for special needs students and struggling students. The intervention of a rich arts project proved to be an opportunity for these students to learn in a different way and to perceive themselves in a new and reinvented light. This confidence was found to transfer into other aspects of their learning.
