WOW!

WOW!

In my time at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre I have come across some of the most brilliant little minds. I have seen child Artists grow and develop their technique with the help of some amazing mentors, so much so that they have begun facilitating their own workshops, I have seen our Kids Reporters challenging themselves to be the best filmmakers, journalists and cameramen they could possibly be and I have seen our audiences grow and thrive in the arts environment. 

I am so proud of the festival and so grateful to all the kids who contribute to its utter joy. I would like to say a huge thank you to Casula Public School, Busby Primary School, Miller Technology High, our Mini Cine Curators, our Kids Reporters and Kid Art Facilitators for investing so much time and energy into the festival to ensure its authenticity, and another equally huge thank you to the Artists, Volunteers, Staff, Facilitators, Presenting Partners and Sponsors without whom, this event just could not happen.
