Young Adult Art Space (YAAS) is back!
Whitford Library is open to the public again from Monday 30 November 2020, and the City of Joondalup wants to celebrate by showcasing the community’s emerging artists. The Young Adult Art Space (YAAS) is looking for original work by artists aged 12-18 who live or study in the City of Joondalup. Students are invited to submit their own work, or to speak to their Visual Arts Teacher. If it’s an original piece (or a reproduction of the artists own work) of 2D art sized A5 – A3 the City wants to show it off. The YAAS space will be open during the school holidays; you don’t have to wait until next year to share the amazing talent. Contact Whitford Library on 9400 4870 and ask for Michelle or Christine, or go to Young Adult Art Space webpage for more information.

Academy for Enterprising Girls
The Academy for Enterprising Girls is a website jam-packed with great stories and inspiring videos to help young Australian girls to build core skills to start their own business, change someone else's for the better, or create something new. As part of this, they are running a series of webinars to introduce girls to women who have interesting and fulfilling careers. So far in the series, they have hosted a microbiologist, an astronomer, an astrophysicist, and several entrepreneurs.
This week, the webinar is with the founder of Hello Cass, Emma Koster. This is a chance to hear how Emma turned a problem existing in her community into a social enterprise, helping thousands of people in need.
