It was a great night and a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness about our recent endeavours and aspirations. It's nice to know that even though we have graduated, bricks + cartwheels still has the continued support of the University and Faculty in particular.
We managed to raise $237.85 on the night! Thank you so much to everyone who came.
Your kindness and generosity is much appreciated.
A special mention must be made to Sarah, president of SUAS, for her enthusiasm and efforts to strengthen not only relations between bricks + cartwheels and the Faculty, but also between alumni and current students of Sydney Uni. Thank you, Sarah.
Bring on the next one! Looking forward to it!

We'd like to give a special mention to our fantastic architecture gang, who have been through thick and thin with us for the last 6 years. Where would we be without you all?

By using their traditional skills the women gain income and independance. Part of the proceeds from all products go back to the women and their communities along with funding educational facilities and other programes for underpriviledged children.
Bholu also has a blog called Bholuland which you should check out! There are lots of inspiring photos and stories about their work both here and in India. We discovered that AWF (Architects Without Frontiers) under the leadership of Sam Crawford and Jane Rothschild are designing the next Bholu anganwadi building in Ahmedabad, India.
To find out more about the amazing work of Bholu check out their website here. It's great to find out about wonderful companies like this.
All photos coutesy of Bholuland blog.

The lights went out and the hour went by easily with a couple of guitars and great conversation..
"It is about simple changes that will collectively make a difference."
We were proud to be part of it. Hope you were too.
