BUNGAREE Primary School students have been enjoying an arts challenge with artists in residence Kitsiri De Silva and Louise Snook.

The ‘Awesome Arts Creative Challenge 2018’ project is ‘Different Voices’, interpreted through artworks that explore what different cultures mean to them.

The hope is that the artworks created by the students could be made into anything from a book to a film.

The completed artworks will be unveiled at a community celebration at the end of the week where parents, teachers and community members will be invited.

Some of the pieces may be showcased in the major annual event ‘Awesome: International Arts Festival for Bright Young Things’, held at the Perth Cultural Centre from September 28 to October 12.

The program is designed for remote and regional schools.

BHP sponsors the challenge in an effort to promote educational work undertaken in some of Western Australia’s most remote communities.
