BYDS Breakdown – August Newsletter

Dear people, Spring has erupted at the beautiful Bankstown Arts Centre where BYDS are fortunately situated. The big magnolia Felix has blossomed and demonstrated, once again, how important a part nature plays in helping us humans to be happy.

Firstly, let me honour our very own Tim Bishop, Indigenous Youth Arts worker, who will be moving on to new pastures next week. May lots of love and good vibes follow him and his family as this new chapter unfolds in Tim’s life. 

As for BYDS other work, I am excited to report that we will be publishing our nextWestside in October, coordinated and edited by Filip Stempien, funded by WestWords. I have included a photo of Filip and students at Bankstown Public School engaged in an illustration workshop with artist, Stephanie Peters.

So many wonderful artistic and cultural blooms bursting and enveloping us. 

Tim Carroll, Director
