Phegans Bay artists win Bouddi Foundation awards

Two young Phegans Bay artists have won awards at the annual Bouddi Foundation for the Arts Awards ceremony on November 28.

Singer-songwriter Ruby Archer and prop designer Zali Kassi were among 26 young Central Coast artists receiving grants of $500 to $5000.

The grants totaling $63,500 this year go to artists ages 15 to 30.

Ruby said: "Music has been integrated into my childhood and growth for as long as I can remember.

"It has consistently played a huge role in my life and my approach towards it."

Ruby will use her grant to re-commence lessons with her teacher, Dorian Mode.

She will also use the funding to cover the costs of distribution and promotion of her music on social media and creating a professional website.

Zali's grant will allow her to buy the tools and software necessary for her studies and to fund short courses with companies such as Erth and the Wyong Art House to enhance her skills in properties and objects.

She will also use it to gain a more professional understanding of how the props industry works as a whole and within individual companies.

Zali said: "Receiving the Bouddi Grant gives me the chance to extend my art-making practice, expand my technical knowledge and capabilities, and explore my career options in the creative arts industry."

Foundation chairman Mr John Bell noted, "This year's awardees are truly remarkable in the quality of their work, and all have the potential to excel in their chosen field.

"Each has persevered toward their goal despite the pandemic's devastating effects on artists of all genres seeking to earn a living across this nation."

Constrained this year by NSW Public Health Orders to a small audience of awardees, their family guests and invitees, the Foundation looks forward to an awards event in 2022 open to the community showcasing the fantastic wealth of young talent here on the Central Coast.
