Taylah tells the story of her love of art. 17 years ago, I began art going to a local art class at a local art museum on Saturdays and later at a local club on Monday nights.

I also participated in an art workshop in 2017 called: “front up studios.”

I entered an art competition called the 2022 access Artybald prize. My painting is a portrait of me holding flowers my Nonna gave to me for Valentine’s Day in 2020 (2 years ago).

The photo was taken at her house, but I did the portrait of myself and changed the background to my house.

I own a lot of patterns including skinny lines and bright colours to bring the joy of happiness. It expresses innocence and truth.

On the night of the access Artybald prize opening night as the managers were reading the judges’ comments and announced the name of the winner…it’s me!

I was so excited it’s a dream come true.

How to win people’s choice award: I got family, friends for example: long term close friends, primary school friends, high school friends, line dancing friends, art class friends, card making friends, work colleagues, gig buddies to vote for my painting.

I shared the link so they can like and comment on social media.

Results: I received the most votes across Facebook, Instagram and handwritten votes at Front Up Studios.

Winner of 2022 access Artybald prize: Taylah.

Winner of 2022 peoples choice award: Taylah.

It’s a wonderful experience and achievement!

COVID-19 Vaccinations update


The NSW Chief Health Officer has extended the current exemption that allows workers (and volunteers) who have received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine to continue to work if they have been assessed as being essential to the operation of the service.


All workers (and volunteers) who have not yet received their booster must also take reasonable steps to get the booster as soon as practical. The exemption has been extended June 29 2022.

We want to say thanks to all volunteers who have sent through an updated version of their vaccination certificate.

If you haven’t done this yet, it’s important that you send the latest copy of your vaccination certificate to Gig Buddies ASAP. The certificate must show the dates on which you have received all THREE doses of the COVID vaccine.

Similarly, for those who have been granted an exemption from a medical professional, we require a copy of any relevant documentation.

You can access your vaccination certificate through your Medicare or MyGov account. Please send this certificate to info@gigbuddiessydney.org or via text/WhatsApp it to 0411 252 228.
