Last week, Rivendell School held the annual Storyweavers multimedia exhibition, this year focussing on the theme of My World. Running for three years now, this event has become well known in the community for its awe-inspiring showcase of student creativity and artistic talent.
In the lead up to the night, students from all Rivendell programs participated in art and creative writing workshops, run by expert artists and producers. Students developed art works, digital products, spoken word pieces, poetry and short stories, all of which were crafted to provide a unique insight into the students’ personal vision of their world.
A huge thank you to the external artists and producers who worked with the students and helped make Storyweavers : My World such a success: Marina Debris (Environmental Arts); Howard Matthew (Digital and Creative Arts); Michael Moebus (Sound Engineering); Bilal Hafda and Tammy Burnstock from the Sydney Story Factory (Creative Writing).
The event, emceed by the Rivendell Student Representative Council and opened by Maria Serafim (Director, Educational Leadership, NSW Department of Education), was held under the stars on the grounds of Rivendell School and was attended by students, their families, health and education staff, friends of Rivendell and key members of the community. Guests were treated to a night of mystery and enchantment as they were immersed in artworks that spanned across the grounds, including the historic Rivendell boat house.
Feedback from the night was overwhelmingly positive, with several guests stating that it was the best Storyweavers so far! Maria Serafim exclaimed:
“I can unequivocally state that the creative and expressive art exhibition I experienced last night at Rivendell School was the most moving and extraordinary event I have attended”.
Thank you to the guests who attended the evening and for their continued support of our school; and to all Rivendell staff and students for their continued passion, innovation and creativity in bringing the Storyweavers vision to life.
