Kulture Break the dancing grooving youth outreachers are celebrating their 10th birthday and what screams “PARTY” in this town like a photo op with Arts Minister Joy Burch?

They’ve also put out a media release:

Canberra youth outreach organisation, Kulture Break will celebrate their ten year anniversary with a two-week festival featuring dance performances, workshops and a gala event funded by a $12,000 grant from the ACT Government.

Kulture Break is a non-profit charitable organisation based in Canberra that is dedicated to helping young people.

“We are grateful to the ACT Government for providing this funding,” said Francis Owusu, Expo Festival Director. “We are proud of what’s been achieved during the past decade and are looking forward to celebrating those achievements with everyone who has supported and helped Kulture Break.

“The annual Expo event helps Kulture Break to expand further into the community, enabling us to provide even more young people with the tools and knowledge to create a positive change within their own lives.”

ACT Minister for the Arts Joy Burch commended Kulture Break for their tireless work with youth in the community. “We are very pleased to be able to provide Kulture Break with this Grant to assist with their 10th Anniversary celebrations and annual Expo event.

“Young people are confronted with many challenges and the work of Kulture Break makes a big difference to their lives. Kulture Break provides a safe and creative environment for young people to use performing arts as a tool to help them overcome their obstacles.”

Kulture Break will host a Gala event on Friday 6 July and a community showcase on Saturday July 7th. The Gala and Showcase will close the Legacy Expo which runs from June 25th – July 7th. The Festival begins with a series of school visits that include dance performances, motivational talks and tailored dance workshops and ends with a showcase of performances by Kulture Break dance students.

So Kids, when you grow up you dont actually have to work for a living there IS an alternative, say all the politically correct things, give the spiel about chasing your dreams and then get the taxpayer to pay you to dance.
