The art of volunteering

News Article Date: 
Thursday, 12 May 2016

You are invited to put pen to paper, brush to canvas or camera to iris and get creative with the Art of Volunteering in Warrnambool project.

Organisations or individuals are encouraged to tell a story, take a picture or create a piece of art work that depicts the way they view volunteering in Warrnambool and the surrounding district.

The project will be officially launched at a volunteer thank you breakfast on Saturday May 14, as part of National Volunteer Week.

Warrnambool City Council Volunteer Coordinator Bernadette Northeast said that the aim was to gather and collate images and stories of volunteering and volunteers.

“Entries do not have to be of a professional artist quality, but they do need to reflect the personality of volunteering,” she said.

“We want people to show what it means to volunteer and how volunteers benefit individuals and the community.

“There are primary and secondary school categories, as well as an open category, so we are encouraging people of all ages to reflect on their own volunteering, or the volunteer work of someone who inspires them.

“Paintings, photographs, poems, shorts stories… there’s no restriction on the medium, so you can be as creative as you like.”

The best submissions will be exhibited and photographed to create a printed book of stories and images.

Community organisations, schools and volunteers may see this as an excellent opportunity to raise the profile of their organisation or volunteer group.

For more information and to obtain an entry form contact Project Officer Leanne Pickett on 0409 963 395 or email bnortheast@warrnambool.vic.gov.au.

Submissions are due by Monday July 18.
