In a bid to help lift community spirit, Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre and Liverpool City Library have joined forces to increase digital offerings to the community.
August highlights include a free, online screening of Australian film Unsound to mark LGBTIQA+ awareness day Wear It Purple Day tomorrow, August 27.
With brilliant performances by rising stars Reece Noi and Yiana Pandelis, as well as appearances by much-loved actors Todd McKenney and Christine Anu, Unsound captures the universal and inclusive nature of love. Bookings are required for the 7pm screening. A scene from the film is pictured above.
September includes a virtual trip to Italy, with the screening of Georgia Cecere’s debut film, Primo Incarico (The First Assignment).
A contender for the Controcampo Italiano Prize at the 2010 Venice Film Festival, the drama brings a story of hope, friendship, and fulfilment in the most unexpected of places.
All ages are catered to, as CPAC adapts popular performances to be screened in aged care facilities.
The 2020 performance of The Starliners is one of the exciting shows being prepared, with “sing-along’’ booklets so residents can lighten up any day with classic songs including My Girl, Be My Baby, These Boots Are Made For Walkin and It’s In His Kiss.
Budding artists can also head over to the CPAC website for the Essential Art Pack that includes everything they’ll need to have hours of fun creating.
The pack includes CPAC’s Let’s Get Creative booklet, with more than 30 activity ideas.
Parents, guardians and carers can use the Creative Kids Voucher provided by the NSW Government if the child is eligible.

And in partnership with the Lebanese Muslim Association the library is helping young jobseekers become job-ready by learning techniques to enhance employment opportunities.
While libraries are currently closed, members can access free resources from the comfort and safety of their own home.
