'A Land of Snow and Ice' Creatives Land of Snow and Ice Performances
A Land of Snow and Ice is an Arctic adventure for young people and their grown ups. Brave explorers must travel to the far North, to complete a very important mission. With an emphasis on providing imaginative opportunities to learn, to play and to discover, the work uses a combination of role play and sensory activities to promote belonging and connection between young people, their families and their community. CASP funding will allow the work to be shared with audiences in Albury, Corowa and Beechworth.
Regional Originals is a fortnightly, original music night to be hosted at Woolhouse Albury with a keen focus on three original music artists each event. This fortnightly, tables booked, COVID safe, seated event highlights original artists and gives them a supportive setting to perform their music.
