Children’s Participation in Cultural Activities in Victoria

By Matt Hurlston

Real estate in Carnegie and other suburbs in Melbourne is often sought after due to the impressive arts and cultural scene in this inspired capital city.

The passion for participating in cultural pursuits usually starts at a young age, and Victorian children are actively diving into the artistic events and activities, according to a recent release from the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

In the year leading to April 2012, 37 per cent of Victorian children aged 5-14 participated in at least one organised cultural activity outside of school hours.

This participation rate is higher than the national average and continues strongly into adulthood, with 35 per cent of Melburnians aged 15-24 regularly taking part in cultural activities.

Children also showed an impressive attendance of performing arts events (44 per cent) and library visits (54 per cent).

These results suggest that Melbourne's arts and culture scene has a strong future ahead of it, as these children grow into the artists and performers of tomorrow.

If arts and culture are important to your property purchase decisions, have a chat with real estate professional Matthew Hurlston at Ray White Carnegie about the great opportunities and events in the area.
