Career Allsorts

Inspiring the curiosity and creativity of Primary students

Career Allsorts encourages Primary school students to explore career aspirations through art.

It aims to help students think more broadly about careers, introduce them to a range of career models and challenge any occupational stereotypes. The program is adapted from the Drawing the Future report and Inspiring the future work. It aims to spark students’ curiosity and inspire career aspirations.

This program is made up of two activities:

  1. Engaging with the school community and parents to talk to students about their career
  2. Asking students to create an artwork of a job they would like to do when they are older.

The 2022 program was a huge success and we are now excited to launch the inaugural Career Allsorts Exhibition.

Career Allsorts Exhibition

We asked students to draw or paint a picture of a job they would like to do when they are older. The artwork could be any career the student desired and was not restricted to the jobs speakers talked about. Students were even encouraged to create their own job!

The exhibition opens on Thursday 9 March and will run until Saturday 29 April 2023.

Come down to the Gallery and explore the career imagination of primary school students:
