Poetry Competition and Art Exhibition
Some of you will remember from our AGM we talked about an annual poetry competition in the name of one of our members, Louise Griffiths. We are now in active planning for this year's competition which will be launched in Refugee Week 2020. We are keen to include refugees themselves as possible entrants and are also looking for ideas to ensure we get maximum publicity. If you have any suggestions on either topic, please let me know.
BR4R has been planning to host an art exhibition with two short films in the Ignite Ballina Council studios in Ballina. The exhibition comprises a number of pieces designed by refugees through a joint project in Coffs Harbour with Anglicare and Southern Cross University. At this time the exhibition has been postponed but stay tuned for the dates later in the year.
