A new bunch of FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras is to about to be let loose in Hobart, along the banks of the Derwent, and on the gentle rolling slopes of the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens as they look for their first SUPER SHOTS for the ROCKLEY FLOWER FOTO EXHIBITION & AWARDS at the 2013 MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL FLOWER & GARDEN SHOW. This has all come about by FF KWC forming links with a number of supporters led by the help of New Norfolk high school principal, Malcolm Elliot. He introduced the program to the RAFT ((Real Action Forward Thinking) forum, and to MISSION AUSTRALIA’s Jenny Reynolds. The project will run with the assistance of help from MISSION AUSTRALIA’S YOUTH CONNECTIONS team members.
This will be the first workshop program to be run in Tasmania since Sorell Public school in 2009, and the first in New Norfolk and Hobart.
As a result; a two day program will take place at New Norfolk in the first week of the September holidays. Two workshop programs, each with a maximum of 10 participants, will be run with the culmintation being a FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras FOTO SHOOT at the ROYAL TASMANIAN BOTANICAL GARDENS on the morning of September 13th. ADDITONAL WORKSHOPS WILL ALSO BE RUN SHOULD THERE BE ENOUGH INTEREST. The word has gone out and the program will be extended in both Hobart, Port Arthur and Launceston if enough kids with cameras put their hands up! Anticipated dates being on the Wednesday and Friday of the first week of the holidays, and the second week for PA or Launceston.
The FOCUS FORCE Kids WithCameras will be hangin’ out with
so they can get into the mood with a special “product shoot” using these Australian designed gardening tools for eager junior planters. Watch for their SUPER SHOTS on the site, and on show in Hobart. And we hope more exciting news about Twigz events.
