Darcy Duncan

Mr MARK COURE (Oatley)

—I recognise a rising star in the film and production industry, Darcy Duncan from Shopfront Arts. In 2017, his mother encouraged him to join Shopfront Arts as a workshop participant and he simply fell in love with the organisation. At the age of 15 he has already been involved in 11 different productions as an assistant technician. Darcy is always on time, polite and ready to learn. Some shows that he has been a part of include: Cake, The Pecking Order and The Unknown. Shopfront is a youth led organisation and aims to encourage youth to become involved in theatre. I would also like to thank Darcy Duncan and Cathy Nisbet who do an outstanding job at making this happen and I thank them both for their commitment over the past few years. Last year I was able to recognise Darcy with a Youth Achievement Award as part of the St George Community Awards, which recognises so many wonderful people in our community every year, for their ongoing service to the region. Well done Darcy, I wish you all the best for the year ahead.
