Drug Aware Backstage Pass

Drug Aware Backstage Pass

Regional Arts WA

Young arts worker Dureen Bolton coordinated a three-day masterclass for young people in Merredin.

Over the holidays participations engaged in script writing, editing, lighting, sound, costume design, and creative thinking. Artist Blake Jenkins was engaged to work with Dureen, teaching the ins and outs of creating independent films.

“The project brought many good things to the community, including inclusiveness and awareness. … The families of the participants and the participants got to meet each other, form new friendships and make more bonds.”
