Thank you – Flux: Fest



Thanks to all who attended Flux: Fest!

Flux: Fest celebrated arts projects that have taken place throughout 2022: All aimed to give young people new tools for self-expression, so that we might see our futures differently.

Thank You to ALL the Flux project members – for being brave, and bringing your whole selves.

To everyone who helped the event go so smoothly – volunteers, caterers, sewers, mini-bus drivers, photographers, designers, technicians, and teachers. It’s amazing to know what can be achieved when we put our heads and hearts together.
