Happy new year to all and welcome back to the first Design By: episode of 2016! I’m joined by Amie Batalibasi. I first meet Amie not long after I moved to Footscray. I was looking for ways to contribute to the vibrant arts community and I chanced upon Colour Box Studio, an arts based not-for-profit that Amie founded and was running with the help of other passionate art practitioners and volunteers. Amie is also a documentary maker, media trainer and creative producer. We discuss arts funding, returning to study and the benefits of collaboration.
