Kim S. MacKenzie - Passionate About Human Potential
The 'HERITAGE STAR Project' Art Cards Mawanella, Sri Lanka ( Original event held on December 15, 2016)
The HERITAGE STAR Project was a unique creative art and music workshop event developed for the local village children of Mawanella in Sri Lanka, hosted at the home of Mr Lalith Weerasinghe of Mawanella, and facilitated/sponsored by Dr Kim MacKenzie and William MacKenzie from Brisbane, Australia.
A total of 18 village children participated in the formal ‘inspirational art’ morning workshop using pastels and paper brought over from Australia in person (quality art materials are heavy and thus costly to ship). The ages of the children ranged from 8-12 years, representing Buddhist, Moslem, Christian and other faiths.
The event was officially opened with the raising of the Sri Lankan and Australian flags and a Blessing ceremony from the local monks, and closed with formal speeches acknowledging the wonderful spirit of participation by the students and diligent pre-planning and hard work on the day by all the dedicated organisers.
All students (and host Mr Weerasinghe) received a personalised laminated Certificate of Attendance (produced in Australia), which were formally presented by the Head and local monks, at a follow up event.
The final students’ artworks were photographed and then visually enhanced to produce the professionally printed ‘HERITAGE STAR Project Art Cards’ as a social enterprise product. The costs incurred through the preparation and conduct of the project and subsequent production of the final card product have all been donated by the founders for the long term objectives of the HERITAGE STAR Project.
The first annual installment of post production PROFITS (AU$960) from the sale of the cards went back to the children and their families via a bank transfer to the appointed funds manager, at the end of December 2017. This was considered a significant achievement, and the funds are in the process of being used for educational related resources. We keenly await photos of the village children with their new school uniforms and supplies, and will keep you posted ...
* All records of art card sales and country transfer of funds have been documented and are available for auditing purposes for all card purchasers and government officials. *
