Another year comes to an end. 2017 was a fantastically creative one for BYDS and I would love to pay tribute to the artists that made it happen:
Our RESPECT program hits new heights with six new songs being produced to acclaim both artistic and socially. Our understanding of issues pertaining to domestic and family violence and how we can intervene in young people’s understanding around that continues to grow – huge praise to Craig Taunton and his team: Zainab Kadhim, Bilal Hafda, David Miller & Tim Wall. The Smith Family C4C program funded RESPECT, thank you.
Root and Branch, Stories of Strength, Linked Up, Bankstown Poetry Slam & 4ELEMENTSall showed how excellent, professional artists working with community can change lives for the better and bring people to new knowledge.
Our first newsletter of 2018 will reveal our annual program – To Be Honest of course will be the first artistic cab off the rank. See below.
On a personal note I would like to thank all of the people, institutions and organisations that worked with us, supported us and helped us deliver what we do so well to so many people from the Bankstown and surrounding areas.
Tim Carroll, Director
