Parramatta. ICE to set up creative hub

The Parramatta-based Information and Cultural Exchange (ICE) is setting up a creative hub that can provide a program of support and mentorship for those who want to establish digital arts-based enterprises and businesses, said ICE, executive director, Lena Nahlous. Saber Baluch, from Liverpool, a 21-year-old communications student, at the University of Western Sydney, is one such person. His creative business plan impressed the judges and he was awarded Western Sydney's most coveted young creative entrepreneur award, the Create Media Incubation prize, with prizes totaling $10,000 in the form of equipment, office space, training and professional mentorship. He will have his own video camera and edit suite as well as office space, with access to training and mentorship, allowing him to set up his own creative enterprise.
