“STRENGTHENING COMMUNITY FRIENDSHIPS AND RESILIENCE THROUGH THE ARTS”
Iluka Emporium Incorporated is proud to announce that we have been awarded a Grant from the Northern Rivers Community Foundation to offer FREE creative workshops in 2023.
The Nine Free workshops will be provided to the community throughout 2023. Each workshop will be lead by an experienced facilitator often in their home studio .The workshops are designed to be relaxed, enjoyable and flexible for the benefit of small groups of people of different ages. The participants will also be involved in collaborating together to hold Exhibitions on the completion of each workshop. Connecting with others in this way will encourage friendships and wellbeing.
NRCF state : We connect people and communities to tackle challenging social and environmental problems in the Northern Rivers. We are in it for the long haul, our funding model of investing donor money means we (and you) have a lasting impact on disadvantage. https://nrcf.org.au/

Congratulations Iluka Emporium on gaining this grant which will be a great help in encouraging members of the local community to participate in and enjoy arts and crafts on their doorstep, a great pastime.
Thank you Noela – it is indeed an honour for Iluka Emporium to be able to offer free creative workshops in small groups to strengthen friendships and resilience. Exhibitions of the artworks will further give opportunities for the community to gather and connect.
