The winning ‘Live Life’ entry, by Arabella Say

The winners of the ‘Live Life’ portrait competition for youths (aged 15 – 21yrs) were awarded their prizes earlier this month. Please click here to view the award ceremony at Springwood Library, and see each of the winning portraits. Aniko envisioned an art competition that celebrated the lives of seniors through the eyes of the youth and worked with Naomi to create a project that was promoted to the local high schools. The standard of artworks received was very high – and Sarah Gurich from the new Blue Mountains Cultural Centre was asked to be the judge. Naomi put up an exhibition of the winning works at Springwood Library.

Wake Up and Read with Frank Ozo

Posted on January 30, 2012. Filed under: 1 | Tags: , , , , , , , |

The kids at Springwood library were in for a treat last friday. They were enthralled for the entirety of the show ‘Wake Up and Read with Frank Ozo’ – a one-man comedy incorporating music, drama, mime, puppetry, magic and circus skills all linked with short charming tales about growing up in Australia. Each tale is another piece in the puzzle of how Frank came to do what he does today and tells the important role books played in his life. The photos are by John Merriman – thanks, John!
