Put the A in STEM

“You might be studying to become artists and you might think that maybe a soldier, an engineer, a doctor can do more to try and help against war and bring peace but, actually, your talents in communication are what is really, really needed”

Nobody makes the case better for the A is STEM than the 2015 Sydney Peace Prize winner , George Gittoes. He was born in Rockdale and went to Kogarah High School. He has spent his life in places like Bosnia, Rwanda, Somalia, Cambodia, Mozambique and Afghanistan so that he could use his talents as an artist and filmmaker to teach local people media and art so they could take control of the devastation they were experiencing and find a way of expressing themselves positively and productively. In Afghanistan he even achieved permission to rent one of the billboards to show his Yellow House school children’s films. His important teaching of inspiring creativity in the face of destruction is why he is such a powerful but modest human being. A world changer. Such a remarkable man.
