WHAT PEOPLE WE HAVE WORKED WITH HAVE SAID ABOUT SIGNAL CREATIVE
Warren Central School
Signal Creative are to be admired for their enthusiasm, dedication and creativity. You have inspired our girls to develop their leadership, social and creative skills!
It was very exciting to see the culmination of all the hard work you both did with our girls - the performance was very emotive and challenged our girls to step out of their comfort zones. The personal growth of each of the girls has had a positive impact beyond the classroom. The wider community were very impressed with the performance and exhibition - you have showcased our school very well!
Thank you for your dedication.

A massive thanks to Emma and Caroline from Signal Creative for a fun filled few days for Coonabarabran’s Easter Holiday/Youth Week program.
This program allowed our Youth to shine and showcase their hidden talents in the areas of creativity, Dance, Singing, Music and Arts and Craft. The program allowed collaboration within the community with services and Youth.
It was great to see some of the Youth over the course of the few days come out of their shyness and watch their confidence build. Singing and preforming in front of a large crowd.
I really feel like the program helped us to plan meaningful activities that will help the youth grow into their potential and gave us a platform to engage, connect and respond to the needs of our future generation.
The week finished with a bang with the Disco, the Young people took control with the decorating, DJing and performing.
Thanks for working with our Diamonds and turning them into stars.

Signal Creative brings a refreshing definition of the terms 'collaboration and partnership.
The team from Signal Creative worked consistently with our Barnardos staff and Girls Group, mentoring "The Galaxy Girls" to ultimately deliver an artistic triumph. Emma and Caroline presented a skillfully planned, highly professional, and well executed expression of the creative and performing arts process. It was a thrill to observe and the best that I have had the recent privilege of witnessing.
Emma and Caroline demonstrated clear understanding of our client needs, were culturally appropriate and expert "wranglers" of a group of teenage girls. The Signal Creative team gave of themselves and their skills above and beyond. We are looking forward to working with Signal Creative on future projects and expanding our relationship with them.
This positive exposure to the creative arts realm has been identified through our evaluation process as a key and vital opportunity, exposing our young women and their families to opportunities and future dreams that may not always be so easy to access, living in the regional centres of NSW.
Thankyou Emma, Caroline and the wider Signal Creative collective."

On behalf of OA we can all agree that if it wasn’t for your commitment to engage with those that have limited accessibility to cultural program we wouldn’t have been able to accomplish so much with the limited resources and time factor. The creation of the Galaxy Girls and hence the performance of Neon Caves during Wellington’s popular Springfest celebration really highlighted the positive engagement from a group of kids who are always on the fringe of community activities. What positive energy I witnessed on the day of the performance, I especially loved that one of the GG’s came up to me enquire if I was her audience. Loved that confidence.
Thank you again for your support to the arts in the region and I look forward to supporting more and getting this program out to the region.

As the Northern Territories landmark music program for Aboriginal women in remote communities, MusicNT’s Sista Sounds was thrilled to work with SIGNAL and share ideas. Founding members of SIGNAL, Emma Hoy and Caroline Wallace, offer a perfect balance of professional skills and personable attributes that allows them to connect meaningfully with participants whilst delivering genuine skills development. As facilitators Emma and Caroline are enthusiastic and conscientious and have the quality of ‘can do’ people that make ideas and programs come to life. The connection made between Sista Sounds and SIGNAL strengthens a national network of professional women in the music industry who support and mentor female Aboriginal musicians. Sista Sounds wishes SIGNAL success in their endeavours and looks forward to working with them again in the future.
