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.

The team at Limelight have made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Gala due to the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak in the ACT.
Our first priority is the safety of all our students, teachers and our communities at this event, and the best way we can maintain this priority right now is to stay safe at home.
We understand that this will be difficult for schools who look forward to this event each year and disappointing for all the students and teachers who have already put so much effort into developing an item for the Gala.
We are working on plans for 2022

Thankyou to all schools who participated in the Art Exhibition this year.
