Create N Connect – Art 4 Self Expression workshop aims to encourage and engage young women from 15 to 17 yrs. This program is developed from the strength of the feedback gained from a similar program implemented as part Blacktown Creative Funds Grant last year.

This allows them to access their inner strength, develop problem-solving skills to build emotional vocabulary, gain confidence mostly importantly establish their artist identity in a fun and safe environment.
