Creative Arts by Rise welcomed hundreds of visitors during their Family Fun Day.
The Family Fun Day was held on Saturday 12th August at Creative Arts by Rise in Warwick.
Family Fun Day
People were able to see a range of artworks including paintings, pottery and woodwork on display.
There were wood burning and pottery wheel demonstrations. A number of craft activities included painting wood houses and spoons
Children also enjoyed meeting reptiles thanks to Amy Wild Reptile Adventures and having their faces painted by Rosie O Entertainers.
Program Manager Skye Stevens said the event was a great success.
We had over 150 people come with their families to join in the activities and support Creative Arts. The day was enjoyed by families, clients and staff and we look forward to doing it again next year.
The event was possible thanks to a grant from Shelter WA. Lots of information about homelessness was displayed around the building. Some money was also raised for Shelter WA with a donation box and the sale of calendars.
Many of our people are at greater risk of becoming homeless. Some of the reasons are housing affordability, mental health and disability. Rise is proud to be an advocate and raise awareness of the issue.
