aboutus

Born to lift spirits during these unprecedented times and allow the talents of rural children to shine, SPEAKUP! also aims to provide ongoing support to local communities and rural charities and organisations. 

 

ABOUT US

ABOUT US

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic restricting social gatherings this year, the speech and drama competition SPEAK UP! aims to bring children together to celebrate a community spirit. The competition acts as a fun and innovative way to make the most of online platforms 

to share a genuine love for drama, poetry and the Arts, and to also support rural charities and organisations that do so much for the wellbeing of rural people. 

 

The competition aims to give rural children in Central West NSW a chance to showcase their unique drama and speaking talents through an online platform, whilst unable to participate in drama and public speaking lessons or competitions at school. More often than not, rural kids miss out on the opportunities that cities have to offer in the Arts industry because of a lack of funding, resources and facilities, not to mention geographical isolation. This competition plays a vital role in showcasing the breadth of talent amongst rural kids and allowing them the opportunity to discover and enhance these talents.This year, SPEAK UP also looks to support the Country Women’s Association (CWA) whose valuable work improving conditions for country women and children should be supported and not go unnoticed in these times. 

Our vision is to shed a light on the significant positive effects of the Arts Industry in regional NSW, and to provide enough ongoing support to rural charities so that they can continue working to improve education, health and facilities in rural and remote areas of NSW. 

 

Our mission is to provide an online space for the young people of regional NSW to showcase and develop their artistic talents, especially in a time like this when the Arts industry has come to a stand-still, and to raise charity funds for rural organisations so that they can continue to support regional communities. 

OUR MISSION

OUR VISION

SPEAK UP FOR THE CWA!

 

The CWA was formed in 1922 when country women were fighting isolation and a lack of health facilities. Within the first year, the Association was a unified, resourceful group that was going from strength to strength. The members worked tirelessly to set up baby health care centres, fund bush nurses, build and staff maternity wards, hospitals, schools, rest homes, seaside and mountain holiday cottages - and much more. The women of the CWA have been initiators, fighters and lobbyists. They have made localities into communities by providing social activities and educational, recreational and medical facilities.

 

The CWA is the largest women's organisation in Australia and aims to improve conditions for country women and children.

By entering this competition you will be SPEAKING UP for the CWA!
