Honestly, truly, inspired and motivated by RedBubble competitions, often run by other members, I got the idea of asking the proprietors of the Dutch shop, in Smithfield, to donate a prize of $50 worth of their merchandise, for a competition for 9 to 15 year old children, who have a Dutch connection and live within travelling distance of the shop.
The other part of my inspiration, you may have already seen, here, on RedBubble.
It’s the way the adults (often the grandparents, but not always), so enthusiastically point things out to children whom they’ve brought into the Dutch Australian Cultural Centre.
This morning I’ve launched it. Have put an explanation on the DACC and Federation websites and emailed as many people, as possible.
Hopefully, it will bring a few more young(er) people to the centre, to get an idea of their heritage_, through possibly parents,or gand-parents, or having migrated from the Netherlands, themselves.
