I’m still buzzing with energy from this International Day of Disability event at Rockdale Town Hall on 10 December 2014. As you can see from the attached photos, we had a blast of a time performing for the amazing people involved in disability services in the southern Sydney region.
Audience members told us about their experiences of creativity, supplying the material for OOTB to improvise creatures and stories full of passion – whether it was the teller’s love of animals, acting, scriptwriting, soccer or fast food.
The Town Hall was filled with creative energy – from the wonderful wheelchair dancers of WALCA to Shopfront’s fantastic dance ensemble, the very gifted Sunnyhaven musicians and singers, and two extremely talented solo dance and hip-hop performers.
I have absolute admiration for the Hatch Creative Circle and others who helped these emerging artists channel and express their creativity. I was inspired by all of the performers and felt honoured to be on the bill with such wonderfully gifted people!
If only the money-making machine OOTB created during the show could be realised and put to work providing ongoing support for these disability services!
