Orange Waste2Art Competition awards night

We went to the awards night last night, which sounds sooo fancy! It was at our Orange library and the dress code was decidedly practical for the Orange winter evening  :)
Phil, Jola, Aileen and Jenny attended, with no expectations, as the entries this year were exceptional! So we were floored that we won 1st in the waste theme category for our "Ceativity Heals" installation as well as winning 1st in the building/sculpture category! woohoo!
Our "Creativity Heals" installation was a group project in which every single person was instrumental in our win. It is so wonderful to be rewarded for having a good time together. Besides winning a small monetary prize we also benefit from everyone who sees the exhibition learning about us. The opportunity to connect with our community was an aim that ran parallel to our concern as artists that creativity can help heal the world. It is up to individuals to make a difference, we certainly can't leave it to our politicians.
Kate Willoughby, without who Waste2Art would not be. Thank you Kate!

Our Mayor came to give prizes and made the evening very special. He has a great kindness about him.

art, nibbles, great cause, a confluence of a lovely evening
