What does progress look like to you?
CuriousWorks has had a season of patient progress and pay-offs. In many ways, our progress has come in the form of mile-stones: we launched our third, final iteration of Beyond Refuge at Casula Powerhouse; Prone to the Drone launched at Sydney Film Festival, and will be touring across regional NSW with the Travelling Film Festival; and at our sister company Co-Curious, Counting and Cracking was nominated for 8 Helpmann awards, including Best Play Production.
But while we appreciate these accomplishments for what they are, we know that progress is not always marked by launches and accolades. Progress can be a small public reading of a play in development. Progress can be the end of a first term of school workshops getting into nature. Progress can be taking the time to reflect on the progress from the past year, and being grateful for all the steps taken, no matter how big or small.
Speaking of little steps, July means the Way Out West Festival, Sydney’s premiere interactive festival for young people, is almost here! You can find us all over the festival – hidden away on a mysterious VR mission, illustrating the history of Liverpool in the garden and roaming the grounds as its eyes and ears. There’s no better antidote for winter hibernation than celebrating young people and their imagination and verve for the future.
