Hey, at SoCC  we empower kids’ creativity & uplift creative adults!

The School of Cultural Creativity empowers children (and adults) who prefer a creative education to learn, grow, and achieve in light of who they are.

Our community experiences the best of creative education on farming environments in the Yarra Valley, Victoria.

We are a not-for-profit, for-purpose social enterprise, and a registered charity.
