Learning for Life.
At Gristmill, we think we are incredibly lucky to have made
careers out of writing our ideas down in dialogue and stage
directions. Naturally we think the ability to write is extremely
important, as is the ability to read – so we can assess whether
what we have written is nonsense or not.
We think everyone deserves the opportunity to learn to write
and read their own nonsense which is why we think the Smith
Family’s Learning for Life Program is amazing. Really amazing.
We even wrote an episode of Upper Middle Bogan around it...
The Smith Family provides thousands of disadvantaged
Australian students the opportunity to be supported through their
education, which, as Bess struggled to say to Dr Wang, is the only
thing that breaks the poverty cycle. (And, as Dr Wang said, the
statistics are just extraordinary. Lives really do get changed.)
If you’re interested in being a supporter too, explore more here.
And if you’d like to get into the Gristgiving spirit right now, you can! We currently have bespoke and precious artworks from our shows for sale, the proceeds of which will all go to The Smith Family.
Stay tuned on our social media channels to find extremely
special Gristmill ventures that you can be part of to support
the Smith Family and Learning for Life.
