         FRANCES MADDEN                             MATTHEW COOKE                                  ERICA SAPIR

FRANCES:  SICA spotted Frances Madden's singer/songwrter gifts back in 2014 when we awarded her a $5000.00 SICA Prize.  Now "Australia's rising star in jazz and blues" got another award! A $10,000 prize from a local FM radio station that took her to Nashville and back.  No wonder the  Australian press is urging everyone to catch her quickly before she becomes an international star performing on the big stages of the world! 

MATTHEW:  There doesn't seem to be a film or documentary that actor/writer/director Matthew Cooke touches that doesn't win awards!  Google him and you'll see what we mean.  And now, he's in  post production with a new one, Suvivor's Guide to Prison,  starring Susan Sarandon and Patricia Arquette among others that's set to debut in Feburary. He makes you stop and think.  We could use some more conscience in the world.

ERICA:  Erica is on our SICA Board, but she's also a co-founder of the internationally famous Puppeteers Without Borders that uses the art of puppetry to empower communities around the world to deal with conflict resolution and sensitive issues. You can catch something she just did with refugeess in Europe via this film, Who Is the Enemy?,  sponsored by Susila Dharma Germany.

"When people are reconnected to their own inner light of creativity, they are connected

to the light that illuminates our landscape and guides us through our lives
