Digital Futures Workshop Initiative

Introduction

Introduction
In 2013, our intention was to create an outlet for expression and an archive for future generations. A number of committed and focused facilitators were present; many with lived experience, some without, who offered insight and outlined the exciting possibilities the program could offer to those who might identify with the intention that;

"A journey of recovery starts with action"

Our Belief was that the process should begin with the smallest and most basic of steps irrespective of whether creativity is being utilised as a medium for simple expression or for a pathway to recovery.

Thus began the Recovery Through Film and Food initiative, which continues to this day as Digital Futures Australia

Empowering participants, irrespective of race, colour, creed or persuasion, with the enthusiasm, the tools, the guidance and the venue to produce and showcase their very own digital content in a comfortable, cathartic and non-judgemental environment.

Digital Futures operates under the generous support of our gracious patrons Kew Neighbourhood Learing Centre, with funding made available through the Adult Centre for Further Education in association with Burke & Beyond, a registered NDIS provider, focusing on inclusivity and community.
