Artarmon Youth Committee goes ARTY



ARTY, previously the Artarmon Youth Committee, has been running for approximately two years. The crew of nine fantastic people have come together to put on some crowd stopping events for the youth of Artarmon.

ARTARMON STAR SEARCH 2007- 2008 was a great way raising funds to enable us to run other youth programs. Kids from all over Artarmon tested their skills in a contest to be named the Artarmon star. Thanks to the support of local businesses there was a great range of prizes. The grand final was a spectacle at the 2008 Artarmon Fair and the winners of Artarmon Star Search were showcased in Chats wood’s ‘Youth in the Mall’.
KEEP YOUR EYES OUT FOR THE NEW ARTARMON STAR SEARCH IN 2009

ARTARMON YOUTH GARDEN 2008 Kids aged 3 - 15 came down armed with their gardening gloves to help establish the ‘Arty’ Garden on Elizabeth St in Artarmon. When finished, it will be an ideal spot to meet friends, sit down and absorb the surroundings or even just admire some of the hard work of the Artarmon youth including their Mosaic tiles. We still need helpers for this ongoing project so if you are interested, contact us through the website www.arty.org.au

Our first ARTY PARTY in August was for youth aged between 12 and 17, held at Artarmon Bowling Club located on Burra Road, opposite the Reserve. The aim of the night was to provide a ‘meet and greet’ style situation where the youth could get to know the members of ARTY and also each other. Watch our website for the next party!

AND NOW A NEW EVENT CALLED ARTY 18+
On August 29th, Arty will gather at the infamous ‘Great Northern Hotel’ on the corner of Mowbray Road and Pacific Highway. Here the “18 and over” of Artarmon can come and have a few drinks, play pool, and get to know each other. Friends are welcome! ARTY 18+ will be a regular event throughout the year!

MUSIC IN WILKES AVE    
Arty organised the first Wilkes Music Night in July.  Shoppers, diners, and passers through were entertained by talented local performers. Singers, dancers, musicians and magicians alike will provide entertainment for two hours each month. If you would like to perform, contact us through the website, www.arty.org.au

CHATSWOOD SPRING FAIR 2008 SEP 6TH
