We are over-the-moon to start the year with GOOD NEWS! Our very own AMY HUNTINGTON has been awarded the Institute for Child Success Focus Fellowship for 2017. This includes a residency at AIR Serenbe in Chattahoochee Hills, GA, USA. The residency supports an artist in any medium, making work for young children. It is funded by the Institute for Child Success and Reach out and Read South Carolinas. (More about this award here.)
And that’s not all! We’ve just found out that Amy has been invited as a guest to the SXSWedu gathering in Austin, TX; the Small Talks Conference in DC; and to share her work before a screening of the film, NATURE MATTERS, in Charlotte, NC.
