Narelle and Ava have welcomed three new staff and an intern to the Art Refuge ministry.
Mark comes aboard from Media (where he is maintaining one day a week). Mark is from England but has called Australia home for most of his life. He is looking forward to using his facilitation and event management skills to build up networks of like-minded Christian artists interested in reaching the wider Perth community (with their aesthetic gifts).
Mario and Birgit and their three kids have come to Perth from Germany for two years. The Hehrs are particularly interested in exploring new ways to spread the Gospel with fine arts.
Julie has come to Perth for two months from the Emerald Isle of Ireland. Julie is on her gap year between school and university (or in her case, art college). She is interested in ministering with her artistic talents.
