Meet team Bamara as we shine our spotlight on Rosie, our Art & Yarn Facilitator from our ParentsNext team in the Northern Territory.
Rosie plays a crucial role in helping our participants from the ParentsNext program build up their confidence and self-awareness and encourage growth through artistic freedom through our Art & Yarn program.
I facilitate the Art & Yarn program in Darwin and Palmerston in the Northern Territory. I am currently working towards creating a Resume, Cover Letter and Interview Skills short course tailored for our participants and the barriers they face.
I was fortunate to hear about this job through being a participant at Bamara. My role in Bamara is one I’ve never done before but felt confident that I could do. My role works really well with being a parent and allows me to be creative in ways I’ve never been able to be in previous jobs I’ve had.
Art & Yarn is a 5-week course where participants can explore their creative side through art and craft activities and Yarn in a safe and welcoming environment.
Each week has a focal point for participants to reflect on and discuss in the group. Through Art & Yarn, we aim to help build up confidence and self-awareness for each participant.
My first job was as a cashier. This role taught me a lot of customer service skills and about responsibility.
Bamara has helped build my interpersonal skills to communicate with adult participants effectively.
I’m a creative person and love making art in different mediums.
I would love to travel around the Pacific Islands and explore more about our beautiful country Australia.
I have enjoyed learning new skills through facilitating Art & Yarn. I’ve also enjoyed working towards creating a new program.
Give things a go even if you feel a bit out of your comfort zone and take every opportunity to learn new skills.
I find it most exciting working with participants. Seeing them build up their confidence, overcome barriers, and achieve their goals is very rewarding.
