Impromptu interview at 2012 Tweed International Day for People with Disabilities Ambassador Tim Thomas
After a lengthy hiatus last year due to illness I had the opportunity to reassess personal values and how they could better align in a more fulfilling way with career goals and objectives life begins to get roll on again.
With renewed vision and inspiration the later part of last year through my involvement with Kirra Hill Community and Cultural Centre, saw the beginning of negotiations with a local Not For Profit organisation, On Track Community Programs Ltd. On Track covers an extensive area of the Nsw North Coast, from Coffs Harbour to Tweed Heads/Coolangatta working with the disadvantaged. Those with physical/mental disability and also indigenous people providing support, employment and housing services.
Initially contracted to produce a Welcome to Country DvD project as inhouse cultural awareness training for new workers and volunteers the scope has now extended to cover other On Track activities due to the recognition of video as a useful tool for training, promotion and raising awareness of the issues their organisation represents with the potential for ongoing projects.
This is a very exciting opportunity to get back on my feet, fulfills values that are personally important while providing some much needed new equipment, a Canon XF-100 camera.
Much of the video produced for On Track may not be made public due to sensitivities of clients however watch the On Track You Tube channel for updates. Some unlisted video may be available for viewing on request.
