Big Arts Give

The National Gallery gives school children a chance to buy into a national treasure.

This week (Monday, 31 October) GIS Spotlight gets art closer to a new home, kids into safe activities and revisits an empowering court at work.

An exciting national venture is inching closer to completion and GIS Spotlight wants you to be in on the action. Join us to get the first peek at the new home of the National Gallery and a colourful new strategy to help complete the distinct structure.

Hear how in the final push for the building's completion, students' contributions this week will trigger an individual's generosity to reach the goal.

Next, we transport you into the new world of afterschool activities featuring a plethora of sports, performing arts and hands-on lessons that are equal parts fun and usefulness. See how 800 students are becoming healthier, fitter and more wholesome children in a fun and safe atmosphere.

Find out how you can volunteer your time to the public-private sector programme and influence a young person's life for the better.

Then, we revisit an evocative Drug Rehabilitation Court's graduation -- a powerful pit-stop in the intervention process for drug abusers. Discover the positive tools that defendants can now access in their journey towards better lives.

Produced by Government Information Services, GIS Spotlight highlights government's services and solutions regarding issues that concern and affect you.

The weekly programme now airs on Cayman27 at 8:30 p.m. on Mondays, and 6:00 p.m. on Saturdays. All stories seen in this week's show can also be found on the GIS Marketing and Communications website: www.gis.ky.
