In case you thought we hadn’t been using the word awesome enough lately, we’re excited to announce that Be Awesome founder Christian Duell has been added to the board of trustees for the Melbourne chapter of the Awesome Foundation.

The Awesome Foundation is a global community advancing the interest of “awesome” in the universe, $1000 at a time. Much like us here at Be Awesome, the Awesome Foundation believes that awesome comes in different shapes, sizes and colours, and they seek to celebrate acts of awesomeness¬†through monthly micro-grants. Micro-grants of $1000 come out of the pockets of the chapter’s “trustees” and are given on a no-strings-attached basis to people and groups working on awesome projects.

As a chapter trustee, Christian is excited to be able to play a part in supporting Melbourne people and projects with awesome potential. Following the success of the Be Awesome Festival pilot in Brisbane in May 2015, Christian has recently relocated to Melbourne to establish a Melbourne-based Be Awesome Festival pilot and from here the Dream Team will grow to run ongoing events in Brisbane and Melbourne before expanding to Sydney and Singapore in 2016.
