WELCOME TO MY WORLD 2011-2012









Forty young people from Aranmore's Intensive English Centre made a giant foosball table that was exhibited at the Free From Fear Art Exhibition during National Refugee Week as part of YMCA Open Arts. To create the foosball table the young people attended an all-day drama workshop with theatre artist Anne Sorrenson and ten weekly workshops with visual artist Poppy van Oorde-Grainger.

Propel Youth Arts WA hosted the Free From Fear Art Exhibition as part of Refugee Week 2011 Australian-wide celebrations. The exhibition was held at the Central Park Foyer in June. Sponsored by the Department for Communities’ Office for Youth and supported by Save the Children, Central Park, Healthway to promote the Drug Aware message and YMCA, the exhibition explored freedom and children’s rights as defined by young people with refugee backgrounds.

The Let's Come Together And Make Freedom foosball table also went on to be exhibited at the 2011 Commonwealth Youth Forum and featured in a music video created by the young people in a 2012 project funded by the Department of Culture and the Arts.

TAKE 12 2013


Take 12 was a series of short videos written and performed by young people inspired by twelve contemporary artworks from the City of Fremantle Art Collection. From 23 minds, came 12 profoundly different stories.

These snappy, spoofy and slickly produced digital works were made in collaboration with a creative team lead by artist Poppy van Oorde – Grainger, film maker Aaron McCann and Blue Forest Media.

Young people from Disability in the Arts, Disadvantage in the Arts, Hamilton Senior High School and John Curtin College of the Arts participated in the project which was funded by Department of Culture & the Arts Connect Community Collections Grant and City of Fremantle.
