My weekend with ORBIT was amazing. I want to thank Jupiter Artland for the generosity that they’ve shown to me and the other members and for bringing me together with a group of new friends…it was such a magical experience and I wouldn’t trade it for the world! – PJ

It brings out a passion in you. It makes you happy, you can come here and talk about art…it widens your mind – Lyela

My favourite part of the trip was hearing about everyone else’s background in art…my family are not as interested in art as me so being able to go with other people who also enjoy art was fun, and I felt like we all shared an appreciation for the works. – Charlotte
