COMMUNITY CHRISTMAS PARTY

at Kariong Neighbourhood Centre
Tuesday 10th December 2019

THANK YOU – EVERYONE, EVERYTHING WAS GREAT.

Despite the terrible smoke that engulfed the Central Coast on Tuesday we managed to hold our annual Community Christmas Party, and what a lovely day it was to start the Christmas Celebrations.

We shared laughter, great food and company and were entertained by the Nearly Vintage Choir and our Kariong Neighbourhood Centre Ukulele Group. The room looked lovely too thanks to our before and after school children who prepared the table decorations.

A huge thanks to Board, staff and volunteers who helped on the day to make it such a great success. You are all amazing! 

CREATIVE COMMUNITIES ART EXHIBITION SUCCESS. THANKS TO OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY!!

What a night! 🥳

Yesterday evening at Kariong Neighbourhood Centre we celebrated the amazing art our Creative Communities Workshop participants created over the past year. The event was well attended by the community who were astounded by all the wonderful paintings, mosaics, macrame and textile art, and wide array of other creative forms that were on display.

The Centre staff were highly appreciative of the magnificent Aboriginal Art painting and Mosaic Art piece that will take pride of place in the Centre. These artworks were prepared with contributions from the participants in each of the workshop groups under the guidance of Aboriginal Artist Chris Moore and Mosaic Artist Kerry Dempsey from Jellyfish Art.

Kariong Neighbourhood Centre would like to sincerely thank all our community members who participated in the 2019 Creative Communities Art Workshop series and all those who attended the exhibition in support of creativity in our local community. Sincere thanks also to our art instructors Libby Bourke, Chris Moore and Kerry Dempsey for sharing their talent, and to Central Coast Council for allowing us to bring the Creative Communities Art Workshop series to our community. 🖌🎨💝

The Creative Communities Art Workshop Program and Exhibition are proudly supported by Central Coast Council.
