Smart ARTS Launch Party 2013

Smart Arts Mini-Fest Launch Party!

Last night YOLK Collective checked out the Smarts ARTS Mini-Fest Launch Party and asked some of the crowd a couple of questions.

How did you find out about Smart ARTS?

This is my second year helping out with Smart ARTS and I'm a City of Sydney resident... and it's good to help out with the community for such a great artistic program. Last year we had a lot going on, and this year it has been scaled down in a really great way. I'm glad to be back.

I was looking for creative courses to do - and I saw this in the street mag Drum Media... I've always liked art and anything creative and have done events management courses at school, so this seems like a great way to get involved in something interesting and arty.

I heard about this from the YOLK Collective Facebook!

I heard about tonight from Jessie from Filthy Children.
- Kazu (COFA kid and Artist)

I'm here because Filthy Children are my favourite music Collective!
-  Alexei (Attendee and Fil Chil Fan)

Hugo from Baerfrens got us the slot for tonight. He used to be on the Smart ARTS Committee and kept in contact.

What do you love about Smart ARTS?

I think I love working with all of the enthusiastic volunteers... It's definitely the people. This year we had people come back and volunteer again, which is really great!

I love the option to be creative! In my degree (Bachelor of Art Theory) there isn't always an opportunity to do that. It's a chance to meet new people in the industry.

I'm loving the atmosphere. The main wall is... ya know... I love it!

Everyone has a passion about art and culture! Youth Week is such a great thing and I don't think anywhere else does these types of creative things for Youth Week.
