Mulkadee Celebrating 10 years
Sponsored by ECO Community

Mulkadee is a unique teaching and learning opportunity for students and teachers in our Catholic schools who are interested in developing their skills in the arts.

The Mulkadee experience is an annual event for students from Years 5-12 in Catholic schools in the Townsville Diocese. The program offers students the opportunity to workshop over a five day period with experienced professionals in various arts including choral, band, strings, dance, drama and guitar.

The students arrive at the venue on the Monday morning without prior knowledge of the pieces they will be learning. Under the instruction of their workshop presenters, they learn and produce a major concert that is presented to a sell-out audience on the Friday night.

Mulkadee 2015 will take place from Monday 20th to Friday 24th July (week 2, term 3) at the Townsville Entertainment & Convention Centre.

Our 2015 Mulkadee Workshop Presenters 
Choral - David Lawrence
Band - Peter Francis (Iona College)
Guitar - Paul Svoboda (Loreto College)
Dance - Sydney Dance Company
Drama - National Institute of Dramatic Arts (NIDA)
Event Director - Sandra Neal
