Life Theming

@ VOL 10 ON JUN 21, 2018

Adam and Joshua's (Adua) presentation takes us on their extraordinary journey in order to see life from their perculiar perspective. After experiencing the post holiday blues back in 2013, they strived to make everyday different by allocating a theme to each month and prevent their lives from feeling 'Groundhoggy'. After experiencing months of foxes, herbs, flags and even the number 37, they discovered you can make every day worth while and emphasise your creativity by the limitations you place upon yourself.

The Possibility of Coffee

@ VOL 10 ON JUN 21, 2018

Heather Barrie takes us on a journey in order to discover our own, individual identity through the simple acronym- CULTURE. We are educated in making a difference through the smallest of acts and standing out from the crowd through recognising our vision, converting that into our purpose, and then creating our mission. She compares us to a whirlwind which is only ever started with a breeze and gives us the only question we need to ask ourselves in order to enrich our individual culture- How do I want to be seen?

Locked In

@ VOL 10 ON JUN 21, 2018

Adele Bates gives us an insight into being locked in a room full of teenagers and the surprising amount of engagement that grew when questions they actually want to know were anwered. Bates shows us the amount of interest teenagers can have when it comes to learning despite their negative stereotypes. Adele's unique outlook on education and youths challenges us to see children -our future- as a vast amount of knowledge and opportunity rather than burdons or misifits.
