Funnyworks Oz attended the Control & Choice expo at EPIC on Thursday, and I had a great day meeting some wonderful people and services. The day was an opportunity for those with disabilities to visit and gather information from services available to them to choose from once the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) kicks in. And all under the one roof! I was also lucky enough to be interviewed by Genevieve Jacobs from 666 ABC and to link up with people interested in what Funnyworks Oz has to offer, so an exciting opportunity to have the 'Quick Draw' program further established in the ACT and surrounding areas!
Thursday 22nd is the Control and Choice Expo at EPIC which Funnyworks Oz is part of, including being interviewed by 666 ABC at 10.30am! This is part of the National Disability Insurance (NDIS) legislation which will be initiated in the new financial year. This gives those with disabilities more choice in decision making with which support services they wish to utilise and this day promotes the many services (including Funnyworks Oz) that are available. Should be a great day and really looking forward to it - and being interviewed!
Tonight @6.30pm at the National Library is the launch of "The Wonderful World Of Work" for asperteens written by Jeanette Purkis and illustrated by myself! Jeanette is a very talented writer who has released several books previously and with more on the way focusing on those living with aspergers. Should be a really good night and really looking forward to my first book launch - hope there's good nibblies!
Funnyworks Oz will be in an edition of City News soon after having the opportunity of being interviewed on Thursday! A great opportunity for me to raise my profile and get word out there about my business as a community service and how my programs work as a form of art therapy. More soon once the edition is out! Also term 2 has begun for my Belconnen Arts Centre cartooning and caricaturing workshops - lots of seats still available!
