AMP Tomorrow Fund award

In 2014 Philip Channells received an AMP Tomorrow Maker award for his work with Dance Integrated Australia. The glass art trophy, courtesy of Adelaide’s The Jam Factory was awarded to 47 recipients from across the nation who demonstrated perseverance and dedication in their field.

An expert panel were looking for people who had demonstrated that they have been working hard towards a goal and, importantly, one that would benefit Australia. AMP Tomorrow Makers are more than just dreamers, they are also doers.
