Grant me a wish

I've been busy catching up with committee duties and haven't really posted much on here. But today is special.

Our wish has been granted!
If you don't go to our FaceBook page you might miss the news that we have got our very first grant.

We've applied for two with the hope of getting both but are so thrilled that we got the first one.
Wish we could take the glory for it all but we had very little to do with it, except do as our guide instructed. Tara Morales from dLux was the driving force behind this grant application and we went for the ride so we could learn as much as we could from the process and from her.
Next year CCC is going further down the path of giving and interacting even more with our community + learning as much as we can from how dLux and Tara work.
This is what the grant is for:
A hub to engage young people in self-directed learning and collaboration through participation in art, science and environmental activities. As part of the activation of this new space, dLux MediaArts will run a program of community consultations, demonstrations and skill development workshops led by media artists. The program will culminate in an exhibition of works as part of the 2017 Orange Youth Arts Festival.

So congratulations to Tara and Phil for a successful collaboration!
