Congratulations to the Old Ambo’s Judy Pippen on receiving the 2018 Sunshine Coast Australia Day Creative Award. At a special ceremony today at The Events Centre Caloundra, Mayor Mark Jamieson presented the award to Judy for her support to the region’s artists and creative industries through the development of the Old Ambo.

Under Judy’s voluntary management and the efforts of its board, the organisation has moved from a tactical strategy of activating and animating the space, to a more considered strategic approach to medium and long term development.

An accompolished fund raiser Judy, attracted significant funding for building and business development as well as creative project development and delivery.

Old Ambo Board Members John Waldron, Susana Waldron and Robbie Murray with Judy.
