Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : May 13th 2009
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, May 14, 2009 11 NEWS www.innerwestweekly.com.au Invitation to council's big public chat SHANNON ANDREUCCI HOW important is the Ashfield Council area to you? What do you like about it? What changes would you like to see for the future? These are the types of questions that will be posed to the com- munity when Ashfield Council hosts Ashfield's Biggest Conver- sation, a public discussion aimed at developing a new long-term strategic plan for the area. It will be held from 6.30pm to 8.30pm next Wednesday at Ashfield Boys High School. Mayor Ted Cassidy said: ''The public conversation is an oppor- tunity for anyone to have their say on the future of Ashfield and hear a few of the issues that have been emerging over the past two months. ''We will be discussing topic questions in small groups, which is a great opportunity to get to know other community members and listen to their point of view, and potentially seek agreement on priority issues.'' The opinions and feedback col- lected from the discussion will be reflected in the council's long term plan, which will guide the council's services and budgets to 2020. A second public conversation has been scheduled for August 5 with a draft strategic plan ex- pected to be available for com- ment by September. Online forums will be running on the council's website at www.ashfield.nsw.gov.au Youth theatre receives the top accolade Ashfield Youth Theatre artistic director James Winter.

The award recognises a year's worth of work the youth theatre has produced in collaboration with Burwood, Canada Bay and Strathfield councils, such as a music video project, a Shakespeare adaptation and an Australian premiere production. Artistic director James Winter said the theatre's primary goal was to empower young people by creating contemporary theatre for and by youth. ''Our program would not be possible without each council's commitment and support,'' he said. ''The program is very unique and it is great to have that cel- ebrated.'' The award-winning program has included Michael Azama's Crossfire, directed by Jo Turner, about the devastating effects of war on youth, and My Big Fat Fantastical Wedding, a perform- ance in association with Strathfield Council and directed by Danielle Antaki. Ashfield Mayor Ted Cassidy said the council was proud of the youth theatre's extraordinary achievements and its talented con- tributors. ''We are pleased to encourage and foster the development of local young people and provide creative outlets and opportunities for them to meet new people, be mentored and gain skills,'' he said. *1.
