RWAV - 12/12/11
12th Dec 11
Room With a View, Monday 12 December, 12-1pm.
This week's edition of Room With a View saw Stephanie Winkler (under the watchful eye of Peter "DJ Yak" Yacono) take on the lunch hour alone - with some truly lovely results! guests included Andrew O'Keefe from the Victorian College of the Arts, as well as the Victorian General Manager for the Smith Family Charities, Heather Le Roy.
The Victorian College of the Arts is the state's most prestigious Arts University, and this month at ACMI the graduating class struts their stuff in the VCA Graduate Exhibitions, running until next weekend. Andrew O'Keefe, a lecturer in the VCA Film and TV course, joined Steph in the studio to discuss the variety of work being produced by the graduating class, as well as the (somewhat controversial) restructuring of the VCA curriculum, effective 01 January, 2012. Tickets to the Thursday 15th and Saturday 16th screenings at ACMI can be purchased at: http://www.acmi.net.au/vca-grad-screenings-2011.aspx
Heather Le Roy, the General Manager for the Smith Family Charities in Melbourne, also dropped by to dicuss the Charity's goals for the 2011 Christmas Appeals. The Smith Family, founded originally as a Christmas effort by five anonymous business-men, focusses on helping the financially disadvantaged throughout the year by promoting funding for education and basic needs. Their Christmas fundraising target ($4 Million by 25 December, 2011) is 40% of the way to completion, and donations can be made on the official website: http://www.thesmithfamily.com.au
