March Workshops 2014
The towns of Longreach, Tambo and Blackall have been a hive of activity over the past week, with the first round of Shockwave Workshops for 2015 taking place.
A fun time was had by all with an amazing turnout of young people attending 20 workshops from the 20th to the 27th of March. Longreach, Tambo and Blackall held workshops that were crammed with group performances, music, rag rug making, movie making, hip hop classes, storytelling and photography.
Facilitators included Melinda Wells -Musician, Daniele Constance-Theatre & Audio Stories, Eboni Christopher – Longreach Hip Hop Artist, Brendon Mounter-ABC Open Journalist and Nadine McLeod – Photographer. The school based workshops were a success with events held at both Blackall and Tambo State schools.
There was a Showcase at Longreach for the March round of workshops and it didn’t disappoint. The evening saw community members and families supporting and viewing the work the local young people had created over the 2 days of workshops.
