Kim S. MacKenzie - Passionate About Human Potential
The 'HERITAGE STAR Art Project' Greeting Cards
The HERITAGE STAR Project is a unique creative art and music workshop event designed to support the local village children of Mawanella in Sri Lanka. The founding event was hosted in December 2016, 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 inaugural event, featuring an ‘inspirational art’ workshop using pastels and paper transported in person from Australia (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 a flag raising ceremony involving both Sri Lankan and Australian flags, in conjunction with a Blessing ceremony by the local Buddhist monks.
The 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 on December 2017 to be used for educational related resources.
