Celebrating excellence in creative and performing arts education in our public schools

Telephone02 8512 1108



PULSE Alive is a large-scale performing arts event, celebrating talented students from NSW public schools in Greater Sydney and beyond. It provides high quality opportunities in music, dance, drama, visual arts and public speaking to students from all over the state.

PULSE Alive will combine the best of the Arts Alive Primary Choral Concerts and the PULSE Concert into a one-night-only extravaganza to be held at Ken Rosewall Arena, Sydney Olympic Park on Monday 13 September 2021 (Term 3 Week 10).

There will be opportunities for both primary and secondary students within the event and participation will be open to students of all abilities from any public school across NSW.

The event has been designed to provide an opportunity for those schools who would have normally participated in the Arts Alive Primary Choral Concerts or the PULSE Concert, while also expanding the event to cater for hundreds of additional students around the state.

The operation of this program is contingent on advice provided by the NSW Department of Education in consultation with NSW Health. All activities will adhere to the DoE COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions.
