Quotes from 2012 Volunteer Training Course participants
In watching, listening to and experiencing the art that Carousel facilitates, my expectations grew very high and this was projected onto everyone I worked with during the practical projects. The boundless passion and creativity I've witnessed at Carousel has really inspired me.
I have always believed passionately in the importance of creative expression for all individuals, but this course has helped me to thing about how other people experiencing the product of someone's creativity can have a profound effect on influencing people's attitude to help create positive change.
