Artists Inclusive was a volunteer program initiated by Sector Connect to provide volunteers from minority communities the opportunity to work together to develop an inclusive initiative. The program participants were mentored to work towards their individual learning goals within the program aims.
A warm, welcoming and safe environment was created, and learning was supported through peer relationships that are based on respect and trust. We strived to practice inclusion in all that we did. The program finished as participants moved on to sustainable employment.

MacUnity Elders Calendar
Sector Connect facilitates a network called MacUnity. One of the initiatives of the group is to work towards the goals of local First Nations people. The calendar is an initiative that was seeded by this group and involves local Elders volunteering their time to help develop and distribute the calendar. Many local Elders provided stunning artwork to produce the calendar. The outcome they wanted to achieve was to stay connected to culture, and the calendar features significant cultural dates and information so local Elders can stay connected within the Macarthur community. The calendar now receives funding and is produced yearly. Contact Jonathan for further information on 02 46485933.
