We have been notified that East Sydney High School will be closing their doors (as of Dec 2014).
The funds we raised for the school is being redistributed to the Brightside Program that runs with Arc@UNSW. Brightside also ran programs at East Sydney High School.
Brightside is an artistic mentoring program that pairs up UNSW students with disengaged and at-risk Sydney youth, to inspire and assist them in developing their creative skills, confidence and discover new career pathways.
The funds will allow the program to purchase materials (such as clay, glazes, paint, canvases) for the various creative projects that they will be running at Regenesis Creatives, Woolloomooloo and Key College, Redfern. They will also be able to pay individuals to run specialised workshops with the schools. These will include screen printing and film making.
