MESSAGE from “Little Frog”
LAUGHTER & MAGIC bring people, cultures and communities together despite language and/or cultural barriers…
The laughter and magic activities in 2015 are transforming into a multi-dimensional, powerful and dynamic learning and social experience that combines language, culture, body and mind exercise, acting, music, singing, dancing, freedom of self-expression, camaraderie and much more into one.
Some of the 2015 highlights include:
- “Fusion Mind & Body Workout” at Customs House in March – a sell-out Living in Harmony event – Rewarding!
- Fusion Laughter launched in January, 25 sessions were conducted in community centres and social events – membership continue to grow – Empowering!
- Fusion Magic Club formed in April for conjuring cultures through magic – have delivered four performances in dual language at community, cultural and social events – Hilarious!
- I LOVE AUSTRALIA on-line Survey – completed in Oct as Phase I of the City of Sydney sponsored project to gather information on what people love about Australia. The findings will be delivered through performances in 2016 involving over 1500 people. One thousand surveys were distributed and 288 responded, which is an excellent result. The findings are surprising and heart-warming – Life Enriching!
