Dance With a Difference!

GUEST SPEAKER Kirsty Kipling.

Kirsty is distantly related to Rudyard Kipling (The Jungle Book, Kim et al) and comes from Aberdeen, Scotland. She moved to Geraldton 18 months ago and loves it. She has a Bachelor of Science from the University of Western Australia. Her talk and presentation is titled DANCE WITH A DIFFERENCE.

Kirsty has several different roles including Community Leader at Pollinators; Co-Ordinator at Scinapse; Marketing for Euphorium Creative. She has been working through NGALA to create and provide opportunities via social events for young adults with disabilities.

Her inspiration was and is Sam Patrick Harris (he goes to all Northampton football games Ed.)

There are other organizations in the same space as Kirsty such as Variety, ACTIV and Mid West Community Living but she sees them as an opportunity to collaborate. Her ‘team’ consists of Pollinators, WA Country Builders, Apex Club of Geraldton, Left of the Line, Swimming with Sharks, Mid West Community Living and volunteers.

Kirsty presents

She has applied for grants to help organise future and ongoing events and is always seeking donations.

Sixty people attended the first DANCE WITH A DIFFERENCE on October 6th.

They have received some good coverage from radio and television.

DWAD is looking for organizational partners and sponsors (Hint, Hint we could be one! Ed.)
