CFMEU Training Unit
The Art & Industry Festival is pleased to be working in partnership with the Construction Forestry Mining Energy Union (CFMEU) Education and Training Unit. This is the Registered Training Organisation of the CFMEU Construction Division in Victoria. The unit was established in 1993 and offers courses in carpentry, general construction, High Risk Work Licenses and Occupational Health and Safety from Induction through to Diploma.
The CFMEU Education and Training Unit, based in Port Melbourne, is staffed by experienced and qualified construction industry trainers and educators and has state of the art training facilities including a 38-metre tower crane. Their new carpentry pre apprenticeship course has been a great success with employers picking up the graduates as full-time carpentry apprentices.

How you can be involved
The first Art & Industry Festival takes place from 18-27 November, 2016. Following evaluation, it would then be presented biennially to allow two years of authentic engagement by the community, industry and artists in the creative development of challenging, complex ideas and high-quality projects.
If you would like to be involved in 2018, you could attend Lion Taming Your Arts Project, the creative development workshops for Festival projects in which artists meet and exchange ideas and skills with other local artists. You could offer a project to the Festival or ‘pitch’ an idea to the artistic director. Local businesses and industries could partner with the Festival to create sensational arts projects that both promote local industries and interest the local community and artists. Indigenous artists and community members are most cordially invited.
