Step into the Limelight

Step into the Limelight, the Territory’s creative and performing arts showcase event for public schools, began in 2007 and has grown to become the largest youth Arts event in the ACT. More than 1800 students from over 65 public schools, will work closely with their teachers, professional  artists, tertiary institutions and arts organisations to develop outstanding artistic works for two events.

Due to current circumstances the Step into the Limelight Gala has been cancelled.
We thank all of our dedicated schools for their involvement in the Limelight Projects in past years and we hope to return to a more usual year next year.

The Limelight team have turned their thoughts to the 2021 Art Exhibition and Gala. Look out for more information coming in the new year.

The  aims of Step into the Limelight are:

  • Promote ACT Public education through the Creative Arts.
  • Showcase a range of quality art works inclusive of all school sectors.
  • Provide enriched learning experiences for students.
  • Provide quality teacher professional development through collaboration.
