CREATIVE YOUNG STAR PROGRAM

Young People are urged to apply for the ‘Creative Young Star’ Program

Local Federal MP, Bruce Billson has urged students, young people and local Dunkley community organisations to apply to share in the funds available to support talent development and participation in creative, cultural, academic and community activities.

Applications can be lodged by June 21, 2013 for the first round of grants of $500 for individuals up to 25 years of age and $3000 for each of two local community groups under the Commonwealth’s Creative Young Stars program.

“Our community is full of young people who have many great talents and organisations that support them to fulfil their potential and just as we support rising sporting stars, this program is intended to support the development of creative young talent”, Mr Billson said.

“In some cases young people and their families find it difficult to meet the extra costs associated with participating in creative development activities, events and training.

“These grants will help young further develop their creative talents by helping them take part in competitions, eisteddfods, public speaking tournaments and other cultural, artistic or academic events.

“Grant recipients will benefit from the financial support to ensure that more young people in Dunkley get the chance to reach their potential and make an even greater contribution to our community in the creative fields.

“I strongly encourage students and young people, their parents and carers and the many community organisations in Dunkley that support creative talent to apply for a Creative Young Stars grant to help them chase their dreams,” Bruce said.

The categories of activity that may be eligible for grant funding include:

• Creative and performing arts e.g. participation in Battle of the Bands, arts exhibitions and creating writing competitions
• Cultural activities e.g. cultural heritage event participation designed to foster understanding and cultural knowledge
• Academic endeavour e.g. participating in debates, public speaking events, maths and science competitions
• School and community achievement e.g. supporting young people with improving school and community life, youth representation and student support innovations

For the Creative Young Stars program Guidelines or for further information, contact Mary-Jo in Bruce Billson’s office on (03) 9781 2333 or visit the Creative Young Stars program link

SCULPTURE HAS BECOME A POPULAR ADDITION TO MORNINGTON

Peninsula artist Gwen Bridges-Mulder is delighted to know that children are interacting with her sculpture at the end of Main street on the corner of the Esplanade in Mornington. The recently installed bronze sculpture titled ‘Letters’ depicts a young girl about to post a letter into a vintage post box circa 1912. The sculpture was commissioned by Mornington Peninsula Shire in partnership with Mornington & District Historical Society to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the gazetting of Mornington as a Township 1862-2012.

If you would like to send a photograph of your child/children with the sculpture to arts@mornpen.vic.gov.au with an email granting permission for the photographs use in promotional material.

In the mean time for the next 3 or 4 months, Gwen is travelling to the Red Centre for inspiration for her next creative project.

Stain Of Death!

All dedicated to the music of life.
Fingers dancing along the strings
of the ‘stain of death’.
Totally dedicated to the music
of life.
No mercy to the yonder-
While proclaiming the why!
The wonder, the launder,
that washer ones fingers across
a wishing well, the guitar!
Expressions of thought,
while her fingers play
on the strings the,’Stain of Death!’
Shallow to society,
A whispering curtain shuts
her eyes to the wilted,
that is her pain.
For she was a genius
to the musical note.
Do what she will-
When playing a note.
Why do the entire good guitarist
have to go?
Go so tragically, painfully so!
I had just spoken to her,
recently on the artistically
train of thought.
She was so dedicated
to her perfection,
yet the creeping cancer
took her life-
It started where her heart lay-
God! You!
Don’t take her breasts!
But all beautiful souls
never really die!
She is a flower that closes
into infinity-
And, I guess one
can hear her strumming
on the ‘Solar Universal Plane’.
You see JJ on the
‘Stain of Death’,
focusing on that
Universal Electrical
vibrating her harmonically,
musically.
Jet, so I call her JJ,
Jesus Josie.
